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.
Make bug and bee hotels
You can also make your own bug and bee hotels, great activity to do with children.
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.
