UK Climate Change, Plants

This photo taken at Capel Manor Horticultural College shows very clearly how plants are being affected by the very cold weather in Spring 2013.

This time last year the blossom was out and many shrubs and spring bulbs were in full bloom. The growing season is starting very much later this year and it will be interesting to see how quickly flowers and plants catch up once the weather does eventually warm up.

Spring will eventually arrive!

Gardeners just need their normal bucket of hope and adaptability which is what makes UK gardeners so resilient and produces some of the most inspirational gardens in the world.

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.
