Climate Change, UK Climate Change

The UK is basking in some glorious sunshine at the moment – at last!

Forecasters also suggest that the sun will stick around for a blazing Bank Holiday weekend.By Monday the mercury will hit a balmy and pleasant 19C.

Good news for gardeners who are busy everywhere planting seeds like mad and getting plots ready for the growing season which has been delayed by up to 4 weeks this year due to cold and wet weather.

1st May is also National Sunflower Day set up by Guerilla Gardening with the aim of encouraging everyone to go out beyond their gardens and plant sunflower seeds in the hope that they will bring beauty and health to our neighbourhoods.

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.
