The future of fruit

apple-and-blackberries-021

Its been a bumper Autumn harvest for apples and blackberries in the garden. All over the country there have been reports of huge crops of lovely ripe fruit . This is the result of  lots of lovely sunshine and rain at the right times over the summer. The cold winter also had its part to play as many fruits need low temperatures for maximum yields.

As the climate gets hotter how will these fruits survive as we adapt to planting more exotic crops such as olives, kiwi fruit, almonds etc.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
