The UK growing season for plants is longer than at any time since records began in 1772. Since 1900 it has lengthened by 30 days – a whole month – which makes a real difference to the range of flowers and vegetables that can be grown succesfully in the UK.
According to UKCIP, predictions are that the growing season could lengthen by a further two months by 2050 . In some southern areas , the growing season may even run continuously all through the year.http://www.ukcip.org.uk/faq/
