Climate Change, Plants

Agapanthas have to be one of the most wonderful plants for ongoing colour in the summer garden. They can flower from May to late September, require little water and attention, bloom in a range of delectable blues and white and survive well in both pots or planted in borders.

Originating from South Africa, Agapanthas are currently radiating their beauty before the British Museum as part of the South Africa Landscape exhibition. This highlights the rich diversity of plant life from South Africa’s Cape region, an internationally renowned biodiversity hotspot.


This exhibition celebrates 2010 as the United Nations International Year of Biodiversity.This year encourages everyone to learn more about the rich tapestry of life around us, discover why it’s important for a healthy environment and get involved in monitoring and conserving local wildlife.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
