Visit the Climate Gardens  survey to explain how you garden and what services you might use on the internet as our climate becomes more unpredictable and the seasons confused. There are just 10 simple questions and it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.


The information obtained from this survey will be used to develop online environmental projects to help gardeners adapt and prepare for an uncertain horticultural future.

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.

    I live in the US in upstate NY in an area moderated by Lake Ontario. I am interested in how northeastern vegetable gardeners can adapt and change practices – we appear to be in for more extremes of rain fall, drought, rapid shifts in weather etc I’m interested in practices, varieties etc that might make my vegetable garden more resilient.
    Thanks for you blog!

    Thanks very much for your comment Susan. America does appear to be more affected by changing weather patterns. I hope this will make more Americans think about how important it is for every one of us to try and stop climate change by reducing our carbon emmissions.You might want to visit this website for more help with adapting your veg growing to these weather extremes
    Happy Gardening!
    Best wishes
