    @AllSectorsHearThis – cuttings are free, but you'll wait a long time for your fruit. I can't rec Aldi, Lidl and Morrisons enough. Every spring they sell a wonderful range of truly excellent fruit trees at £4 each (Aldi and Lidl) and a fiver at Morrisons. I have a tiny garden, but I've planted a dozen of these trees, which I've espalier, fan and bush trained. The same shops do excellent cheap soft fruit too.

    @themightyscythe – there are plenty of more explanatory videos out there, eg, Martin Crawford, Geoff lawton, the old Robert Hart film that is now available on youtube, I just set out to capture a bit of the magic of some urban forest gardens I know of (including my own) rather than produce a 'how to' documentary

    I don't have the space to fly a kite but i do have space for a small forest garden… My garden is tiny but I've managed to fit in a few apple trees on dwarfing root stocks as well as various fruit bushes and perennial vegetables and edible leaves. Re this film, one of the forest gardens is on a standard sized allotment, which most city people would have access to, the other 2 are community projects, one being a nursery school in North London, the other a community garden in south London.

    Go fly a kite. Most of us who live in the city don't have near as much space as you…..

    Its a sample of their cat purring – tried to paste in a link to PinknRubies website but somehow it seems Youtube won't allow it. Do a Goggle search for more info!

    Great video – was it a cat purring – or some kind of strimmer?
