Wildlife Gardening

Britain’s 15 million gardens cover an area greater than all our National Nature reserves; gardens are the green fingers stretching through the landscape. Their value is even greater because they are arranged into networks of green-space, often going into the very hearts of our largest cities, forming ’wildlife corridors’ through which animals and plants can move.

We are well known for being a nation of gardening enthusiasts. Being right outside our backdoors, they give us our most immediate access to nature. The following wildlife garden tips will help you to attract more bees, birds and butterflies to your garden.

And remember, pollination is a vital benefit nature provides for free...add a splash of colour and a helping hand to wildlife!
