UK drought-flooding 2012 unprecedented

Fri, Oct 19, 2012

Climate Change, Water, UK Climate Change

The dramatic switch from drought and hosepipe bans in England this spring to the wettest April to June ever and widespread flooding was of a magnitude never seen before.

What does this mean for gardeners?

New challenges ahead most certainly and the need to be ever more adaptable and forward thinking to prepare our gardens for such an uncertain future.

* How does these news make you think about your garden?

* Will you be changing what you plant and how you manage your plants?

* Would you be prepared to talk about what you are doing on camera?

* Would you  feature  in a video  about the effects of climate change on UK gardens?

If this idea appeals and you could spare a few hours in your garden during March 2013 for us to film you then please email me below.

Hope to receive some interesting climate change gardening stories!

Many 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.
