Climate Change, Grow your own


Here are some of the weird and wonderful ideas for growing your own produce on the Capital Growth stand at the Hampton Court Flower Show. They really were creative using everything from  briefcases, handbags, lampshades and hats to re-cycling cartons, tins and just about anything else that will retain water.


Everything is planted with small spaces in mind – use on  balconies or window-sills  for a truly authentic taste !

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.
