Chelsea Flower Show – climate change takes centre stage

The  2012 RHS Chelsea Flower is from May 22 to 26 in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, London.

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 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.
