About this book

A guide to the basic steps toward encouraging wildlife into your garden, so that eventually there will be an efficient eco-system. It will help to encourage frogs and toads to keep the slug population under reasonable control, and to attract small birds into your garden so that they stay to keep summer insects in check. It also shows how to attract beneficial insects that can take over the work of chemical sprays, cutting down the problem of pests.
