About this book

Wildlife is a more significant and mainstream issue for gardeners than when this best-selling book was published in 1985 as How to Make a Wildlife Garden. Fully revised, updated and freshly illustrated, this new edition brings RHS research and best practice to a multitude of controversial areas: from the use of pesticides to bird boxes, bird tables and planting for birds; whether tidiness in the garden is a good thing for wildlife; the planting of native species over introduced ones; the idea of habitat creation to preserve diversity; how to attract and sustain butterflies; pollinating insects and the crash in bee populations and how gardeners are involved.

Wildlife forms an increasingly important part of a gardener's responsibility and that responsibility become integral to their decision-making processes. Future gardeners can use RHS Companion to Wildlife Gardening to be better informed guardians of the planet's resources. Chris Baines is the UK's foremost wildlife gardening expert and Vice President of the Wildlife Trusts.
