October warms records and flowers

The Met Office have announced that this October looks set to be one of the warmest on record in the UK. Figures from 1-25 October reveal that parts of the country have seen temperatures up to 3.1 °C warmer than the 10.2 °C long-term average for the month. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/news/releases/archive/2011/october-2011-so-far

Great news for many gardens where unseasonal flowers are still brightening our days. Here is a rhododendron flowering at Kenwood House in Hampstead, London today .http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/plants/plant_finder/plant_pages/11194.shtml

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.
