RHS to mobilize the largest backyard garden since the conquest of the climate

Since World War II, the Royal Horticulture Society has launched a climate campaign to mobilize the largest gardening community.

The charity aims to help 30 million British gardeners reduce greenhouse gas emissions in their backyards and increase wildlife in their efforts to cope with climate and natural disasters.

Gardeners are encouraged to take appropriate action on the planet, such as plant trees, use it for irrigation, to get rid of peas, to grow pollen, and to create more space for many years to grow.

According to RHS, if every gardener planted a medium-sized tree and grew to maturity, it would store up to 11 million times its carbon footprint around the planet.

And if all green-eyed homeowners make an average of 190 kilograms of compost a year — what fertilizer growers do on average — save half a million homes on heating compared to shop production and transportation – Fertilizer has bought, RSS said.

However, less than a fifth (19%) of British gardeners in the Yugov charity have adopted sustainable horticultural principles, such as saving water, making their own compost or fossil fuels.

Special Research About 40% of gardeners still use fossil fuels, such as fossil fuels.

And when the two major campaigns for RSS save water are promised, they will save 6.6 million liters or 82,385 baths of tap water, and the charity says more needs to be done.

RSH also seeks support from the government in the field of horticultural science research and development, and financially supports community gardens in schools, NHS halls and public spaces.

As part of an environment-friendly strategy, RHS will launch a planet-friendly gardening campaign, which will include climate-positive measures: Excessive emissions – by 2030.

It also aims to eliminate all single-use plastics, ensure that all packaging is 100% recyclable, recyclable or recyclable, and that water is neutral in RHS gardens, scenes, and sites by 2030.

“RHS is committed to using its own community access to help the UK’s 30 million gardeners contribute positively to the climate and biodiversity crisis,” said RS Director General Sue Biggs.

But we cannot use this ability alone.

“If we want to mobilize the largest gardening force in the country, from digging for victory, we need government support for the best gardens on the planet.

“This includes all research and development in gardening science as well as financial support for community gardens in schools, NHS halls and public places.

“The steps taken by each of our 30 million gardeners will help us make a positive difference and adapt to climate change and biodiversity,” added Professor Alistae Griffiths, director of RSS Science and Collections.

10 steps gardeners can take to cope with climate change and natural disasters

– Plant a tree in your community, school, workplace or garden to remove carbon dioxide.

– Promise to change the water from the main to the rain to water the garden.

– Go for free peas to protect your precious petals, which store carbon, provide housing and reduce flood risk.

– Prepare your own fertilizer to save carbon.

– Lift the stone floor and grow mature to absorb carbon dioxide from many annual plants, such as grass, shrubs or trees.

– Insert plants into pollen to help keep bees, butterflies, moths, floating flies and other insects down and backward.

Growing or buying cut flowers grown in the UK Grow your own flowering plant as it can save carbon compared to buying imported seedlings.

– Clean your garden, so you use electric tools, not fossil fuels.

– Help your UK Biodiversity Map by adding RHS My Garden online to RHS to protect this important biodiversity conservation.

– Eat more locally grown, UK, local and seasonal fruits and vegetables.
