Climate Change, Exotic, Plants

The Royal Horticultural Society is warning gardeners that soil dryness levels during June have already fallen to a low often not encountered until late July/August. The recent low rainfall has led to soils having a moisture deficit of four inches, meaning that four inches of rain would be needed to restore the soil to full moisture capacity.

Even more reason to choose plants that cope with drought conditions such as the Australian Bottle Brush which is now a common sight in many UK gardens. http://www.myclimatechangegarden.com/blog/bottle-brush

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
