Indian Climate Change

There was not much time to think about gardening or writing my blog whilst I was travelling through big cities such as Calcutta and Hyderabad.I did manage to find some gardening activity in our hotel in Chennai where the obsession with a neat and tidy and lawn appeared worse than the UK. I noticed a lady sitting for hours on the lawn outside my room, digging up weeds by hand and a chap doing the same in a flower border.

I am now further south in Kerala . This stunningly beautiful state is known in India as God ‘s own country – I can certainly see why – I think I am in heaven!

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.
