Wildlife at home

Pine Cone Bird Feeder

Bird feeders are a great way to find out more about your garden visitors and these homemade ones are inexpensive and super easy to make. Different seeds suit different birds, so have a think about what birds are in your area and what you would like to attract.

Let the Grass Grow

This is a simple change that actually requires less work in the garden – allow your grass and any weeds to grow! This doesn’t have to be the entire garden; a border or 1m square patch is better than nothing.

Bug Hotel

Help the wildlife in your garden by building a bug hotel! They can be as big as you like and can be made of natural materials collected in your garden or in your local countryside.
