Looks as though climate change and the effects on our plants and gardens is at last going to be given more exposure in 2012.

Forget the extravagant floral displays and wacky design features like this below which really bear no resemblance to most UK domestic gardens.

The 2012  theme is all about science and the environment.

At this month’s Chelsea Flower Show you can discover how to use tiny city gardens to combat climate change or how science is using microbes to tackle world hunger. Good to see that the RHS, our leading gardening charity, finally raising the profile of climate change at its most prestigious show.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
