Climate Change

Apologies for my absence from blogging over the past few weeks.

Have been exploring Malaysia and soaking up the spectacluar plants that grow in the tropical temperatures of beautiful Langkawi island, just next to Sumatra.

Returned to the UK to be greeted by a wild veggie patch complete with an amazing melon fruit that excites me to think that perhaps I can enjoy some of tropical delightts in the UK.

Will catch up with blogging once I have recovered from the shock of 13c compared to the intense humidity of 35c I have been used to over the past few weeks.

Here are just a couple of shots to explain what I mean about the plant delights of Mayalsia. My favourite sweet scented Frangipani flower which blooms all year round reminded me how much I want to grow one of these fabulous trees one day -something to dream about on a rainy july day in  the UK!

Any idea what this wonderful flower below is and whether it might be worth trying growing one indoors – doubt the UK climate would support this beauty?

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.
