Weather to garden

May has arrived with some lovely high temperatures in the garden which is really helping many plants to catch up after the very cold start to spring.

South East England is predicted to enjoy 21c on Bank Holiday Monday which is wonderful news but night frosts can still be a problem well into May  – take care with seedlings in particular. Here is the link to a brilliant app that warns of impending frosts:

Cold Snap Frost Warning Android App

ColdSnap! Frost Alarm is a must have application for gardeners, allotment holders and anyone else that wants a low maintenance,  low temperature warning.

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.
