Global warming helps gardeners

Everyone knows that the climate in UK is not the proper one for various plants and flowers to be grown up there. Actually there’s a striking fact about the exotic flora in UK. Now gardeners are able to grow fig trees and date palms that are becoming increasingly popular. The cause is global warming as experts suppose. Because of warmer temperatures exotic and tropical varieties start to bloom what is basically impossible for the climate of UK. New Scientist has recently reported the spread of wild mushrooms across the UK which is also caused by global warming.

Besides it’s become easier for gardeners to cultivate tropical plants in ordinary gardens, so they take the advantage of the warmer climate.

"Plants such as the Canary Island date palm, olives, fig trees, bananas and the bottle brush bush are all becoming popular."
