Indigenous people bring Rainforest to Chelsea

Good to see that Chelsea 2010 delivers on environmental messages as well as horticultural trends.

For the first time ever, an indigenous people are creating a garden at Chelsea .The Green & Black’s Rainforest Garden tells the story of how their lives are being devastated by the destruction of the rainforest, their homes destroyed and their way of life reduced to little more than a memory.

Well done to Jane Owen, the writer and broadcaster who  dreamed up the project after a trip to Cameroon last year and  created the garden with designer Ann-Marie Powell. “They ask for very little. And yet it is being taken away from them.”

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.
