Climate Change, Grow your own

Great to know that celebrities like Jamie Oliver are doing their bit to encourage us Brits to reduce food miles by growing our own food.

Such a pity that Mr Oliver did not check where his range of gardening products are being sourced from .The low carbon benefits of grow your own are maybe cancelled out by buying in seeds from Belguim and barbecues from China.

Suggest Jamie and Homebase may need to re-think this one?

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.
