Wildlife has become a mainstream issue for gardeners and the public since this best-selling book was first published as ‘How to Make a Wildlife Garden,’ Fully revised and updated and freshly illustrated and it highlights the changes in garden wildlife over the past 30 years. It incorporates RHS research, updates best practice and addresses a multitude of controversial conservation issues. The book is packed full of practical advice – which plants to choose for bees, birds and butterflies, how to construct the ideal wildlife pond, where to position nesting boxes; how to enjoy wildlife in any size of outdoor space. Gardeners have come to play an increasingly important role in nature conservation and the author shows how wildlife gardening can make a stylish and enjoyable contribution to the environment.
