Wildlife Gardener

Written by Cheryl White

Continued from page 1
I chose a Conester which is great for attracting butterflies and bees inrepparttar summer and supply red berries forrepparttar 144814 birds in autumn and early winter, Globe thistles which attract Blue Tits and finches whenrepparttar 144815 turn to seed, several sorts of Cranesbill, Tickseed, Rudbeckia and Golden Marguerite which are also good for attracting a variety of insects, Clematis and honeysuckle which provide shelter and nesting sites once matured. Overrepparttar 144816 last couple of years I have really begun to enjoy gardening, being able to watch all my efforts come to life and benefitrepparttar 144817 birds in a small way, which if more and more people put wildlife friendly plants, a birdfeeder or two and perhaps a pond if room permits then this would help to make up for some of their decline and help rebuild their numbers.

Even if you have no garden you could hang a bird feeder onrepparttar 144818 balcony or attach a feeder to a window, you can always make room for at least one! Make a difference to your local feathered friends: you can get a lot pleasure watching all types of birds without even leaving your home.
