Potting shed notes

Looking Good 22 April 2019posted: 22/4/2019 at 07:15:49
Continuing the theme of weather in the garden and climate change, last week Farming Today (that early morning radio programme) discussed at length the (calculated) 10% of UK greenhouse gases that agriculture contributes to the earth’s warming. It won’t be long before the copious amounts of artificial fertiliser that most gardener’s use attract attention too…
Now let’s not forget that in the BIG picture, the two most populous countries on this planet (China & India) are STILL BUILDING coal fired power stations by the score… And the world’s biggest economy, the USA, has withdrawn from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change!
However, we all can do our bit – grow a tree or two if space permits, plant a hedge, recycle your compostable waste, go Organic… At Bocombe we do all of these… but shouldn’t we be lobbying for the entire planet to join in, not just the UK?
