First week of spring

This week has marked  the first day of spring . Temperatures are rising and days are getting longer at last in the UK.

Great to think that we have six months growing time to look forward in the Northern hemisphere and hopefully some lovely sunny days in our gardens.

Who knows what the next few months will bring for UK gardens with the South officially in drought even before the summer has arrived!

Will we have another warm spring like the record breaking tmperatures of April 2011?

How will our gardens cope long term with the lack of rain that is now part of our climate ?

Time to rethink what we grow and how we keep our gardens look beautiful this summer.

The climate is bringing new challenges to UK gardeners and its time to re adapt to less watering and creating greener gardens wherever we live.

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.
