5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Winner of the Garden Media Guild New Talent Award 2010. Gardening for wildlife is hugely enjoyable. There is something uplifting about having butterflies in your flowerbeds, frogs in your water feature and birds in your bushes - and knowing that they're here because of you.

But if you want a 'nice' garden too, don't worry! This new book busts the myths that wildlife gardens have to be 'wild', or that you can only garden for wildlife in a 'wildlife garden'.

You can easily fit in wildlife gardening alongside everything else you want from your garden.

The secret is understanding the 'home needs' of your guests.

Tap into their needs and you can create a five-star hotel for birds, bees, butterflies and more.

As well as looking at a host of different species, there are sections to help you create entire habitats, such as woodland and meadow gardens, and a catalogue of over 300 of the very best garden flowers, shrubs and trees for wildlife.

So no matter how large or small your garden, whether it is formal or a family football pitch, there are all sorts of things you can do. If you love wildlife and want to encourage more, this inspirational book will help you sow the seeds and reap the rewards.

Review by

A really first rate book, not just sympathetic in its approach, but realistic as well. Any wildlife friendly author who can present a balanced view of the pros and cons of foxes and badgers deserves to be read. It is written in a lively and accessible style without being patronising, and is organised in a clear and systematic way. Worth every penny!
