My name's Jason Williams and my 18th floor balcony garden "The Cloud Garden" is located in Manchester UK.
The aim of Cloud Gardener UK is to inspire a new generation of urban gardener. I hope that my work container gardening encourages more urban residents to maximise on their unique growing spaces like a balcony garden. In turn we will see the benefits to urban wildlife, biodiversity but also mental health.

My name is Jason Williams. I moved into my apartment in March 2020. Then the pandemic hit. Lockdown turned from days, to weeks then slowly to months. My balcony became an escape. It went from 1 marigold to a mini paradise.
However, I slowly learned that balcony gardening has it's own challenges. There was little to no representation online discussing the difficulties balcony gardening. So I decided to make a Youtube Channel documenting my learnings to help others with container gardening. My channel then became an outlet for me to express my struggles with Mental Health.
The more I shared, the more I realised that my honesty resonated with people. The channel grew rapidly and has expanded across all forms of social media, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and even TikTok. I have 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"
In this video I show you what is possible to achieve in a small space container gardening with my end of season vegetable balcony garden tour. This video is taken from my Youtube Channel: Cloud Gardener UK
My channel focuses on my journey as a gardener on The Cloud Garden, My Indoor Cloud Garden (Houseplants) and Mental Health
