Keen gardeners with a respect for nature and a passion for plants, look away now.
A collection of excruciating horticultural fails have been gathered by one cheeky Instagram account, known simply as S*** Gardens.
Featuring trees completely swathed in AstroTurf, abandoned ornate fountains at odds with a bleak backdrop of wheelie bins, toilet bowls used as decoration and bras used as planters, there’s little to covet about these plots.
However, despite the name, S*** Gardens claims that inclusion in their hall of fame is nothing to be ashamed of, instead it should be seen as a ‘celebration not a condemnation’.
The account welcomes submissions, with most of the gardens featured so far located in Australia.
S*** Gardens has secured a publishing deal, with a coffee table book due for release next year. Here, Mail Online rounds up the best of the worst…
