Jeremy Corbyn has offered garden tips to the American politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a Twitter exchange with green fingers.
The Labor Party leader, who has his own assignment, urged the Democrat congressman to "get her hands dirty" in response to a message on the social media platform.
Mrs. Ocasio-Cortez had asked for "wise" advice from her followers on social media about the best way to work out a community garden plan.

Mr. Corbyn answered on Sunday: "For a new story, first see what is already growing!
"Then go for flowers and plants that attract bees and thus improve pollination for everyone – lavender or comfrey good for bees.
"The best way to be healthy is to get your hands dirty – in the ground!"
Mrs Ocasio-Cortez, 29, the youngest woman ever elected to attend the US Congress, had announced to her social media followers that she would be tackling the community plan in the coming months.
When she asked for advice, she said she "ideally wanted at least one edible thing," and added, "We can do flowers too."
Mr. Corbyn and Mrs. Ocasio-Cortez held in February & # 39; far-reaching & # 39; telephone conversations on topics such as climate change and migration, the congressman said at the time.
After their discussion, Mr. Corbyn said that a political "movement across borders" should be built.
TheAmerican politician has become a household name for her divided policies, inflammatory tweets and a challenge for the establishment – the rising star does what the president does best – but with a very different political attitude.
