April Delight at Athelas

Climate Change

Decided to pay a visit to one of my favourite local nurseries. Some girls go mad over dress shops, even shoes but, for me, there is nothing like a nursery for sheer enjoyment on a lovely sunny day.

Athelas Plants, located in the beautiful East Sussex countryside offers a range of tropical, architectural and exotic plants that have been individually selected by owners Matt and Nigel. These guys have a real passion for providing something a bit different and offer an impressive display of high quality and very reasonably priced plants.



They have  a great new web-site where you can easily search and view plants on-line – delivery charges are very reasonable. Nigel told me they are having one of  their busiest Aprils ever due to the good weather and demand for palms is particularly high – not surprising when you have a look at their plants and prices http://www.athelasplants.co.uk/palm-trees-c17

As well as the impressive plants,  the site has good advice on soils, planting tips and information about hardiness. They have introduced the traffic light system to help identify which plants are totally hardy and which will need looking after if we have another winter like 209/10.http://www.athelasplants.co.uk/hardiness-i47

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.
