Making a haven for wildlife doesn't require acres of land in the countryside. If you get the habitat and planting right, then even the tiniest of urban gardens can host a variety of creatures from birds and bees to hedgehogs.
Covering everything from going organic to making a pond and turning your green space into a wildlife haven – this book is for gardeners who want to apply a more holistic approach to gardening and create their own urban sanctuary. Through a collection of simple projects that can be easily adapted for a variety of gardens and planting guides, this book will help you to re-connect with the natural world on your own doorstep.
Jane Moore draws on her 16 years of experience of creating an urban sanctuary in the heart of the city as she lays out the simple ways in which you can approach making even the smallest patch of land a haven for wildlife, great or small.
In a horticultural career spanning 30 years, Jane Moore has been a head gardener at a Benedictine Abbey, a writer for national gardening magazines and newspapers, a researcher on BBC gardening programs and a TV presenter on BBC Gardeners' World. Gardening and writing about gardening have been Jane's whole career. She has wide-ranging practical experience, an astonishingly broad plant knowledge and an unswerving enthusiasm for gardens, horticulture and its impact on everyday life.
