Olympic stadium gardens enjoy sunshine

The Olympic Park is looking magnificent with the flowers in full bloom just as the Games begin.


Britain basked in temperatures peaking at 31°C today as London witnessed the hottest day of 2012 to date , beating yesterdays high of 30c.

After weeks of dismal weather, the heat wave comes as a welcome surprise to many, and could persuade thousands of Britons to sun themselves at home rather than head overseas in search of warmer climes.

Tourist destinations including Los Angeles and Honolulu were cooler than London, the former by a whole 5°C. Temperatures in Marrakesh not far from the edge of the Sahara Desert, climbed no higher than those in London

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.
