Sustainability and wildlife

Invite wild life into your garden

Wild life will come to your garden if you provide shelter, food and water. 

You can do this in the following way:

  • Choice of plant

    • Plants provide food – nectar of foxglove, or the berries from Holly.

    • Plants provide shelter – in the bark of the Crab apple insects shelter, they are a food source for birds.

    • See these links for more information.

  • Create habitats

    • No matter how small or big your garden is you can introduce different kinds of habits that encourage wildlife into the garden,

    • like creating ponds, or building a compost, or growing wild flowers, or planting hedgerows.
