Snow hits UK

Snow and freezing temperatures are hitting the UK this week.Not good news for many plants that started to flower after such a mild winter.

 However, predictions are that by the 2050s London temperatures will exceed the official definition of a heatwave – 32C by day with 18C by night – for more than a third of the summer.

Where does these leave our plants? Totally confused and challenged by the shifting temperatures which are bringing major changes to UK gardens. Time to change the way we garden? Let me know your thoughts and ideas for a new website coming soon at www. Please post comments  here or email me directly at [email protected]. Thanks!

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.
