Climate Change, UK Climate Change

On yet another snowy and cold day across the UK, the government’s outgoing chief scientific adviser Professor Sir John Beddington linked the severe weather to climate change and warned that past emissions will lead to significant change over the next 20 years.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast he explained: “In a sense we have moved from the idea of global warming to the idea of climate change, and that is rather important – yes, indeed, temperatures are increasing but the thing that is going to happen is that we are going to see much more variability in our weather.

“I think you only have to look at the last few years to see how that is actually starting to manifest itself even in the UK.

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.
