Climate Change, UK Climate Change

Government figures show that the UK Green Economy grew £5.4bn in 2011.

The Green goods and services sector is now valued at £122bn and employs almost one million people.

The UK is expanding its green economy to secure a safer and more environmentally friendly future.

This is also a great way to generate employment in a tough economic climate and offer new career options for young people.

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.
