It is officially the hottest day of the year so far after the mercury rose close to 30C (86F).

A temperature of 29.7C (85.46F) was recorded in Charlwood, Surrey – close to Gatwick Airport – this afternoon.

It beats the previous highest temperature of 29.3C (84.74) which was recorded in Achnagart, in the Highlands, on May 25.

Forecasters are still waiting for today’s final temperatures which may soar even higher and reach 30C.

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.
