Calling All International Gardeners!

I am currently having some very interesting gardening experiences:

1. My kitchen window is still littered with seed packets.Every time I look into the garden it is cold, cloudy and miserable with a distinct lack of sunlight and warmth. Nothing tempts me outdoors to expose my beautiful tiny seedlings to the mixed delights of an English spring.

2. The number of US visitors to my site has just overtaken those from the UK .The increase is from California which enjoys a year round climate of sunshine and where I would certainly rather  be at the moment.

Is my sub-conscious desire for sunshine transmitting itself via  my blog?

Am I connecting to a warmer energy via my thought process?

Whatever the reason for this sudden American interest, I take any increase in international visitors as a positive sign that it really does not matter where you garden.

The important thing is for INTERNATIONAL GARDENERS to share information and experiences about how unpredictable weather patterns are affecting the seeds we plant and the plants we grow ALL OVER THE WORLD.

One example of sharing global experiences is knowing when the first or last frosts  happen in your local area  – vitally important for the success of my seeds if I finally decide to venture outdoors today and open some of those beautiful packets from my window sill:

To celebrate connections across the Northern Hemisphere, here are links to localised frost data for the UK & USA:

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.
