Nurseries

Welcome to the Climate Change Nursery Guide

It is important to seek out good quality plants for climate change gardening so that they have the best chance of coping with increasingly unpredictable weather conditions.

To help in this process, I have created the Climate Change Nursery Guide which offers useful information about the various specialist nurseries stocking mediterranean, tropical and exotic plants. In particular, those practising environmental gardening with a view to helping our planet stay green.

Each review will be based on a ratings system of 5 key criteria:

1. variety and quality of plants

2. ‘green’ credentials ie where plants are sourced from/ number propagated in the UK

3. value for money – these type of plants can be very expensive so this is important

4.staff knowledge/helpfulness

5. general atmosphere and whether it is worth visiting the nursery or ordering on-line

These reviews should  help you decide which ones to visit and or order plants from as most nurseries now offer a mail order service .At the moment the CGN Guide will be limited to the UK but there are plans to set up a similar guide in Australia and America in the near future.

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.
