An anonymous "human shrub" from Colchester — a resident who dresses as a shrub to promote gardening and rescue local flowerbeds, calling himself the Human Shrub — has set himself the challenge of saving the Blue Peter garden.
This garden — which was created in west London by Percy Thrower in the 1970s — is set to move to the BBC's new MediaCity:UK development in Manchester in 2011.
The Human Shrub tried to set up a petition on the Number 10 website to save the garden, which was rejected.
He has now set up a Facebook group — Support the Human Shrub's campaign to Save the Blue Peter Garden.
The Human Shrub sent his local newspaper the East Anglia Daily Times a message calling on readers to support his campaign.
"The Blue Peter Garden is a sacred land which must be saved for the future," he said. "Why do humans only try to save human-made buildings when there are just as important lands to save?"
