Coldest November on record?
05 July 2014 - by Lizzy Browne

I’ve just finished reading ‘A Little History Of British Gardening’ by Jenny  Uglow. It’d been sitting on the shelf for a few years, amongst many other books  that I never seem to find time to read. The last section of the book looks at  current trends and the future (published 2004). The author talks of the change  in climate – the warmer temperatures and droughts, plants that were previously  too tender to survive our climate thriving, and their increasing availability in  nurseries across the country. I was reading this at home after deciding not to  open the nursery today because of the ice and snow. Now I know that climate  change/global warming can’t be established one way or another by looking at what  the weather is doing out of the window but it does make you wonder. Have we, and  the author been duped? If this weather continues for a few more days, as is  forecast, this will be the coldest November on record. I’m not a happy  bunny.
