Climate Change, Architectural, Plants

Whether they are planted in a garden or a public place, palm trees can be a truly impressive spectacle.

This fact has been underlined by councillors in Southend, who have revealed that they hope planting palm trees on the town’s seafront will help to attract tourists exploring England during the London 2012 Olympics.Millions are being ploughed into sprucing up the Essex seaside resort, which includes planting over 100?palm trees on the promenade, according to the Southend Echo.

If the council decides to plant?Chamaerops humilis and?Trachycarpus fortuneipalm trees, they may need to be tended to during February and may require a little extra protection with a fleece or blanket.ADNFCR-2579-ID-19636511-ADNFCR

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.
