Climate Change Australian style

Climate change is affecting all parts of Australia with extreme weather conditions challenging this huge country.

  • La Niña brought heavy rain in 2010, eased drought but caused widespread flooding
  • Prolonged dry conditions continue in southwest Western Australia
  • Australia’s warmest 10 years on record

If you live in  Australia and are a gardener please share your experiences of how climate change is making you change the way you garden. I am keen to find out more about what is happening for a new web-site I am planning. Here a few questions I would love some answers to:

* What are the biggest challenges facing Australian gardeners at  the monent?

* How are gardeners dealing with drought in Australia?

* How are gardeners dealing with floods in Australia?

* What do you think the future for gardening in Australia will bring?

Hope to hear from anyone gardening down-under – took these shots in November 2010 near Brisbane before the terrible floods arrived.

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.
