Climate Change, Trees, Grow your own

The beautiful trees that Kate and William chose to make Westminster Abbey look greener and connected to nature will be on display until 6th May before they are taken to Highgrove to be planted.

After the nationalistic excess of the past few days it is great to get back into the garden and catch up on what is thriving in this glorious weather. The heavy downpours last night really helped the dry soil and has made my rocket seed that I planted just 14 days ago sprout even more.

Think I might be harvesting my first crop very soon if the warm weather continues – blue skies and 20c here again today in the South.Missed out on holding a garden party yesterday but thinking about holding a summer one.

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.
