A gardener’s guide to climate change

SOMERSET-based author and botanist Sally Morgan is coming to Castle Gardens at Sherborne on Tuesday 9th July at 6.30pm, to talk about her new book, The Climate Change Garden.

Sally, who lives at Templecombe, will be sharing some down-to-earth horticultural advice, ranging from soil improvement and water saving measures to resilient vegetable patches and robust flower beds.

The event, in association with Winstone’s Books, will give gardeners an insight into protecting their gardens from extreme rain, sunshine or snow.

Acknowledging the need to adopt new gardening practices in response to changing weather patterns, this new book, by Sally Morgan and Kim Stoddart, offers positive and practical advice to protect outdoor spaces against such extremes, with the ultimate aim of building a climate change resilient garden.

Tickets are available at Winstone’s Books on Cheap Street and at Castle Gardens.
