2024 - Cloud Gardener

Jason Williams moved into his apartment in March 2020. Then the pandemic hit. Lockdown turned from days, to weeks then slowly to months. His balcony became an escape. It went from one marigold to a mini paradise.

Jason learned that balcony gardening has it’s own challenges. There was little to no representation online discussing the difficulties balcony gardening. So he decided to make a Youtube Channel documenting learnings to help others with container gardening. His channel then also became an outlet to express struggles with Mental Health.

The more Jason shared, the more he realised that his honesty resonated with people. The channel grew rapidly and has expanded across all forms of social media, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and even TikTok. He has turned Cloud Gardener UK into a brand and my mission is to continue to recruit more urban container gardeners and show people “How to start a balcony garden”
