Climate Change Gardening














Climate Gardens is creating interest in adapting to climate change through gardeners personally experiencing the effects of increasingly weird weather in their gardens, right outside their back door.

With record breaking heatwaves happening every summer in the UK, gardeners are being challenged to adapt to climate change in their own gardens and can observe these dramatic changes every day. Most importantly, gardeners are ideally placed to plant trees which soak up the increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that is causing climate change.

This blog receives hits from all over the world which proves how important climate change  and its effects are to global gardeners. Our changing climate is the biggest factor affecting our gardens over the next 50-100 years and now is the time to plan for an uncertain horticultural future.

Visit to complete a survey about how you garden in a changing climate. We would love to know how we can help you in the future to adapt to a rapidly changing climate.

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.

    Agree with you that the climate change affects the greens in the garden and farm. Thus, it also affects food production. I happened to share a common interest with you. I do set up a rooftop vertical farm and manage a 1.5 hectare fruit orchard as a form of exercise. I am a family physician with a keen interest in preventive health care. I noted that almost all diseases are ultimately related to lifestyle. Thus, I am promoting Farming Exercise as a form of preventive health and production of chemical-free vegetables for own consumption.
