Hurricane Sandy link to climate change

If you want to see the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy on American gardens then watch this video of a gigantic tree being flattened.

The USA is  picking up the pieces after hurricane Sandy hit the East coast and caused widespread destruction earlier this week. One result of this devastating event might be a change in the American reluctance to accept that climate change is possibly the biggest issue facing our planet . Suggestions are that the issue could now move to the top of the political, social and economic agenda.

The jury is still out for many scientists on whether Hurricane Sandy was a direct result of man made climate change or a freak of nature. Whatever the reasons, storms affecting America are becoming more frequent as well as extreme drought and this has huge implications for the future of our gardens.

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.
