Snow in UK gardens

I have just returned from a glorious 3 week trip enjoying 28c in Australia and New Zealand to find the UK about to experience its first freeze of winter 2010. I think gardeners were hoping for a reprieve from the damaging affects of frost and cold after last winters artic conditions.

Suppose that is the joy of gardening  in the UK –  you learn to be very adaptable and prepared for absolutely anything the weather throws  at us – unpredictability is the the only certainty!

If you have invested in palm trees and exotic plants for your garden then it is a good idea to think about protecting them from continued cold – take a look at these sites for advice and suggestions on the best way to do this:

For a more entertaining view of the efforts involved in protecting exotic gardens in the UK over the winter do not miss Will Giles’ wonderful blog:

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.
