Exotic Garden videos


Will Giles, THE Exotic Gardener launched a series of  online videos yesterday in which he shares his expert knowledge of growing these plants in the UK. In just 24 hours he uploaded:

*over-wintering canna

*checking for new growth on gingers

*the delights of bromeliads

*how to find and deal with Lilly beetles.

The videos are shot in his stunning garden in the centre of Norwich City and in the polytunnels which are currently protecting the wonderful exotic plants that he will plant outside in a few weeks, once the frosts have finished.


Watching Will in action reminds me of what an amazing garden he has created. Can’t wait to visit again at the end of May to record another video interview about his thoughts on climate change in the garden for  winter 2009/10 and the coming summer.

Till then, I will have to make do with the film version on my lap top:

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.
