Jet stream changes course bringing UK warmer weather

Looks like the end of this week will see warmer weather heading to the UK as the  jet stream is likely to change course finally ending the UK’s spell of utterly miserable weather.

The UK is expected to experience drier and more normal weather patterns  next week after record summer rain fell over most of the country – except the north of Scotland –  in June and July.

The jet stream is shifting just in time for the Olympics which after years of expert planning and huge investment are now totally reliant on Mother Nature.

Weather extremes always serve to remind us that, although we think we can control everything in our lives, the weather will always have the last word. Lets hope visitors arriving in the Capital will not be greeted by this foggy “summer” view of Tower Bridge:

The appalling weather has had a devastating effect on many UK gardens this summer and the Autumn fruit harvest is likely to suffer very badly. The RHS have offer some helpful advice about dealing with the damp conditions if you grow fruit in your garden

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.
