City and sea

Have awoken to a glorious sunny day here on the South Coast. I am living two very different lives at the moment .One is a London existence where I spend most of my day in an office. At least it over looks some wonderful greenery that I get to enjoy every lunch time. If you don’t know Russell Square, located near the British Museum then do pay a visit. It gets the sun all day and has some impressive trees – a real oasis of calm in the hustle of the city.

Every weekend I return to the South Coast in Eastbourne and love that feeling of waking up away by the sea – often to glorious sunshine like today.


I can’t wait to get back out into the garden now the days are getting longer and many plants are starting to stir themselves sending out new shoots and the promise of some welcome flowers.


There is one plant in my garden that seems oblivious to the lack of winter daylight and which has also weathered the low temperatures well.It was here when I arrived and I would love to know what it is .The leaves are broad shaped like many tropical plants but I need to find out its origins to understand why it is doing so well. Any suggestions would be great – thx!

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.
