Blooming Roses


Whilst I was in London, I took a stroll round the streets of Hampstead to find out which plants are doing well in the lovely late Autumn weather.


There are some stunning houses and gardens in this wealthy area of North London. I was swept away by the beauty of the roses that are still flowering even though its mid October.

To help you select the right roses to tolerate climate extremes, the Historic Roses Group features four climate categories:

Hot & Wet, Hot & Dry, Cold & Wet and Cold & Dry , displaying specially selected climbing and shrub roses that can be grown successfully in one or more of these categories.

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.
