Climate Change, Water, UK Climate Change

Lack of rain in Southern England continues to be a problem and Thames Water today  launched a campaign to try to prevent a serious drought this year.It aims to make residents near the River Lee north of London and the River Darent to the south use water wisely.

The company said last year’s “exceptionally dry weather” means the threat of a drought this summer “remains real”.

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.
