Gardening: 21st century life has thrown us a hand grenade | Southsea Green

Sunflowers have been on my mind this weekend, especially because I was invited to share a Facebook group to plant hope and sunflowers everywhere we can, and which, with sunshine, rain and some TLC, will flower by late summer... and by then we hope to be free of this shadow.

It seems 21st century life has thrown us a hand grenade.

Our children worry we’ve ruined our planet. Science must overcome this global disaster. Are we up for it? Are we strong?

Seeds of love and community are all around us, we just need to believe in ourselves again. We’ve been asked to keep safe and social distances, How can we refuse.

If you need hope to brighten the darkness, plant sunflowers and share your snaps. Above all, stay safe.

The Southsea Green garden will be closed to the public for a while but rest assured our fabulous volunteers will keep it going.
