2012 wettest year on record?

A storm brewing in the Atlantic could bring up to two inches (50mm) of rain and 80mph winds in some areas of the UK this weekend.

Provisional figures show that 1.8in (46mm) of rain is needed between 27 and 31 December for 2012 to be the wettest year on record for the UK.

A new record has already been set for England, with 43.1in (1,095.8mm) falling between 1 January and Boxing Day, the Met Office said.


2013 is definitely the year to invest in a rainwater harvesting system


Or if your New Year budget will not stretch to this at least buy a water butt!

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
