JULY TIPS AND ADVICE

 

WILDLIFE AND BIRD CARE

Increasing the biodiversity of your plot doesn't have to be hard, or compromise the way your garden looks.

    • Choosing the right flowers

      Flowers provide pollen and nectar for bees, butterflies and other insects that perform the vital task of fertilisation – seed and fruit production would drop dramatically without them. Avoid too many highly-bred cultivars with big and blowsy or double flowers, most of which contain little or no pollen or nectar.

    • Choose plants that provide pollen and nectar for as long a season as possible, from spring through to autumn.  ow a range of trees, shrubs and climbers, or a mixed hedge to provide food and shelter. 
    •  
    • Composting your garden waste helps all your garden plants and wildlife, as it speeds up the natural recycling of nutrients
