RHS Great Veg challenge

The RHS Grow Your Own campaign encourages everyone to grow their own fruit and vegetables at home . They are keen to hear how they can develop their existing  information and services by inviting everyone to complete an Online survey: spend a few minutes filling in our online Grow Your Own survey before 20 October 2011 to win a £50 voucher to spend at RHS Plants online or a copy of The RHS Allotment Handbook: The Expert Guide for Every Fruit and Veg Grower (RRP £16.99).

The RHS are also  running an online competition during next week to share your veggie delights. Post images of your veg on our Facebook page from Saturday, 15 October to Sunday, 23 October and  you might win a £50 seed voucher from Suttons Seeds

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.
