Growing Pains: How climate change is impacting our gardens

Professor Liz Bentley, Chief Executive of the Royal Meteorological Society, spoke about changes to the UK climate since records began – and future predictions. As well as hotter, drier summers and warmer, wetter winters, Liz also mentioned that 40°C temperatures will become more normal – affecting what we plant in gardens as well as how we garden.
