RHS greets an icy 2010

The UK is in the grip of a Siberian freeze with temperatures down to -20 in parts of Scotland.

The RHS is particularly suffering the cold – reports suggest it that has lost its grip on the UK’s gardening pulse and is facing an extremely challenging 2010.

Would love to know your thoughts on this controversial article in the Guardian yesterday – http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/gardening-blog/2010/jan/08/rhs-chelsea

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.

    Hmmm not sure, they still seem to do a great deal of good work with schools and colleges, their booklet is one of the most interesting available and they have lots of links with small and clearly not class defined gardens. I am sure they could do better, but I would not dismiss them so easily as the article does.
