Climate Change, Grow your own

Yet another beautiful sunny day in the garden  –  perfect for picking the last of the autumn fruit .These enormous quince will make a wonderful fruit jelly. Easy to grow and very decorative, they can be found in many traditional gardens but they are not so fashionable in modern design.This is a shame as they are simple to look after and not prone to many more common fruit problems.

Can anyone identify the smaller fruit – I inherited a tree that is laden with these tiny hard fruits but am not quite sure what the fruit is  – or if it is even edible?

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.
