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 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.
