Royal Wedding Parks

Climate Change, UK Climate Change

The Royal Parks are being made ready for the Royal Wedding Day on 29th April. London certainly knows how to put on a spectacular display in its beautiful parks and flower beds as you can see in this photo of  the Buckingham Palace flower beds today. Interesting to hear about the tradition behind the planting schemes

However, it seems that the sunshine and balmy temperatures of last week  have ruined this floral display planned for Prince William and Kate as they stood on the balcony at Buckingham Palace. Encouraged by the early promise of summer, the spectacular tulips in the Queen Victoria Memorial Gardens have bloomed three weeks early. This is a blow to Royal Parks staff who were hoping the beds would be at their colourful best on April 29. Reports suggest that an army of gardeners will be on stand-by, ready to chop the heads of any drooping tulips in the days before the wedding!

Hyde Park will be the centre of royal wedding celebrations for hundreds of thousands of spectators. It covers 350 acres and has more than 4,000 trees a meadow and a lake

Crowds of about 200,000 are expected to watch Prince William marry Kate Middleton on giant TV screens in the middle of the park.Really hope they also appreciate the many beautiful trees and flowers that are blossoming at  the moment.

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.

    that sort of gardening, though spectacular, is like a military campaign.
