Climate Change, Lawns, Lawn Calendar

This is the time of year with very little lawn maintenance as the ground will probably be wet or frosty. It is best to avoid using the lawn in these conditions as it damages easily.

I read somewhere that light brushing is a good way to remove dew and surface moisture on fine lawns but hopefully most people are not that precious about their lawns!

Don’t be tempted to mow your lawn even if the weather is mild enough for it to start growing. Wait until at least March before you even think about getting the lawn mower out – maybe just ensure all lawn equipment is serviced and cleaned ready for the new season.

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.
