What is the RHS Garden for a Changing Climate?
Watch RHS The Garden Magazine, Editor Chris Young speak to Dr Eleanor Webster environmental scientist at the RHS about the Garden for a changing climate designed by Andy Clayden and Dr Ross Cameron and built by the NT Killingley Soft Landscaping department.
The garden features a conventional garden of today alongside a garden set 100 years in the future, enabling us to compare the two versions.
Changes in climate could make our weather warmer and slightly more turbulent in the coming years. When designing the garden for the future, resilience was a key theme the designers explored within the planting and physical structures.
Plants that are resilient and can cope with extremes of weather whilst being functional, providing shade, capturing storm water and filtering water throughout the garden could be key
