WILDLIFE GARDENING IN AN ENGLISH GARDEN


WILDLIFE GARDENING IN AN ENGLISH GARDEN

CHARLIE RYRIE    Book Number: 82601    Product format: Hardback

How things change! Only a generation ago the idea of encouraging wildlife into your garden was laughable. The garden was for flowers, fruits and vegetables. Environment researcher turned gardening journalist Charlie Ryrie reminds us how important it is to conserve our native wildlife, and beautifully conveys the delights which gardening hand-in-hand with nature brings. We learn how to create gardens full of diverse habitats to provide a wealth of plant and animal species with room to flourish. The wildlife garden does not have to be an unkempt wilderness. A formal garden can, with clever design, be as wildlife-friendly as uncultivated meadows and hedgerows, and small urban plots are just as important as rural acres to the wellbeing of people and wildlife. Packed with every conceivable gardening idea, from complete replantings to selection of pond liners, the book is arranged by aspects of gardening, for example borders and beds, hedges, thickets and vertical cover, flowery meadows and lawns, ponds and wetlands and woodland and shrubs, so you can choose what kind of garden you want, then bring in the birds, bees, butterflies, badgers, frogs, newts, fish - a veritable Noah's Ark! Packed with outstanding colour photography throughout, 192pp.
