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 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.
