Climate Change, Plants


Architectural Plants combine year round interest, attractive foliage and many like Phillyrea Latifolia are low maintenance and very hardy. Angus tells me that this plant is exceptionally popular at his nursery .It has the feel of an olive tree but he suggests it is more beautiful as the leaves are intense making it ideal for topiary.It originates from Japan where it is called “Niwaki” which means small tree

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.
