The UK weather has delivered probably the most mixed bag of weather ever during this Summer 2012 .

There was record rainfall in June and July and a distinct lack of consistent sunshine from May to August .So far September has delivered spectacular sunshine and temperatures as high as 28c in the South East.This wonderful Indian Summer is rumoured to possibly continue into October.

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.
