Climate Change Gardening







Climate change is happening now in your back garden and trees are the best weapon we have to fight the increase in carbon dioxide linked to a changing climate.

#EveryTreeCounts in a changing climate. Plus long-lived trees that you plant now will have to deal with a different climate when they mature.

Hotter drier summers and wetter warmer winters are bringing new challenges which means it is important to think seriously about the type of tree that you plant to give it the best chance of survival.

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.
