Artic sea ice melting faster

Climate Change

More sea ice has melted in the Arctic this summer than at any time since satellite records began more than 30 years ago, scientists say.It is thought a natural warming and cooling cycle could be responsible for up to 30% of the melting – but the rest is the result of human activity releasing greenhouse gases.

This melting ice will have serious effects on our ocean currents which in turn challenge our normal weather patterns bringing freak weather and serious consequences to the natural cycle of plants and animals. All over the world we can already see the effects of this with more frequent storms, heavier rainfall and in the UK, a never ending cycle of warmer temperatures mixed with very cold winters. Climate change is happening now and we need to act!

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.
