Jonny Rotten phantom plants a plum tree!

 This time last year we were on the front page of the Daily Mirror newspaper as trunk rocker Jonny Rotten phantom plants a plum tree with us in Belfast and gets signed up as a paramili-tree!

What a good bit of publicity for phantom planting!

Many of you probably dont know this but the phantom planter only exists because of a 9 year old girl, she was my best buddy at the time and she gave me the confidence to do all what I'm doing now!

I never wrote anything in the past apart from price lists, bookie dockets and tick lists!

We started of being drawing buddies for a awhile then I wrote stuff next to my drawings (silly poems and slogans) and she was always telling me how good I was.

I really valued her opinion and I began to write more and more, then both of us came up with the phantom planter together, we talked about how we were going to be superhero tree planters who came out in the middle of the night and planted fruit trees all over streets and estates, we looked into different masks together and she really didnt like the one I choose but I knew it was one that everyone could get easily and I went ahead with it anyway even though she run away scared every time I put it on..

I wanted there to be thousands of phantom planters, so many that no one knew who the real one was all out randomly planting trees!

Back then before we started just over 3 years ago I was always saying to her that we will be having all sorts of Hollywood superstars over to phantom plant trees with us and that we will be on the Oprah Winfrey show one day, (she had never heard of Oprah), we are going worldwide I told her!

Not sure she knew what to think at the time but I never see her anymore and she must be looking me up now and again thinking wow!!! that crazy man wasnt all that crazy!!!

Who knows though, we might have Oprah over yet! 


Peace and love!

I challenge you to phantom plant a tree! Anywhere, anytime, any place.....
