Wild About Gardens


Bumblebees, house sparrows, white admiral butterflies, and early purple orchids are just some of the species declining in our area.  You can help these species and many others by having fun, being ‘on trend’ and turning your garden into a ‘mini’ haven for wildlife. It's easy to get started if you want to make your garden more friendly to wildlife.
