Make your garden a haven for wildlife, and for you and your family.
With the erosion of native wildlife habitats, gardens increasingly provide an invaluable source of food and shelter for Britain's fauna and flora. The Wildlife Garden is the essential guide to attracting birds to your bushes, butterflies to your buddleia and a whole array of other creatures into your garden - even if you only have a window box. Whether you just want to make an existing family space more wildlife friendly or go the whole hedgehog and turn your back garden into a mini nature reserve The Wildlife Garden will show you how to do it. There is full information on what plants are best for wildlife, on how to make refuges for insects and homes for bats, on making a pool for frogs, all whilst adding scent and colour to your surroundings.
The Wildlife Garden is an essential guide to attracting birds to your bushes and butterflies to your buddleia. Packed full of useful hints and tips this book is a must for all our . . . readers with budding green fingers. - Cotswold Life
