The impacts of a changing climate are now firmly at the top of the scientific, political and environmental agendas. But while the big global problems of climate change are addressed in the corridors of power, what are the ramifications for UK horticulture and gardening?
We are considering what our changing climate is likely to mean in terms of what we grow and how we grow it. But it is clear that our gardens will become an increasingly important resource - for ourselves and wildlife. Much still needs to be understood and while no-one yet has all the answers, garden-making and growing plants can be a potent force for good.
