Hampton Court Flower Show hosts Urban Oasis

Today was the first day of the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show and this year the idea of comunity gardening takes centre stage.

Urban Oasis brings to life the many ways inner-city gardeners come together to transform neighbourhoods.

Created by environmental charities the RHS and Groundwork, and sponsored by Marks & Spencer, it guides visitors through eight very different urban green spaces. Each demonstrates the extraordinary impact when inner-city neighbours get together to turn wasteland into gardens through community projects and schemes such as RHS Britain in Bloom and It’s Your Neighbourhood.

Plants grown and trained in different ways show how neglected spaces can be transformed into inspiring and exciting community havens:

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.
