Climate Change, Weird Weather

It has been raining all day – yet again.

So far this month is the 9th wettest April for the UK in the records.

Wonder where the month will end up in the records  – especially as very,very heavy rain is expected tomorrow.

Some parts of the UK already having had more than double their monthly average and its likely to continue into next week


Impact on drought

In South England  this month is one of only three in the last two years which has seen significantly above average rainfall.

As can be seen from the chart in this article, the majority of other months during that time have seen below average rainfall.


Lets hope May brings some more sunshine for our gardens. all those little seedlings sitting on my kitchen window  are desperate to get outside – me too!

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.
