This book offers detailed information on how to create areas of woodland, wetland, grassland and rockland in gardens of all sizes. It includes inspirational garden plans and a comprehensive plant listing. This latest title, in a growing and successful series, is by an UK author. Everyone can play a part in conservation and enjoy the delights of a garden that attracts wildlife. With today's concerns about pollution and habitat loss, more and more gardeners are using organic methods of cultivation and actively encouraging wildflowers and creatures to colonize their gardens.
In a well-planned garden, there is plenty of room for both people and wildlife. "Wildlife Habitats for Your Garden" explains how to successfully create and maintain garden habitats such as woodlands, wetlands, grasslands and rocklands. Also included is a chapter on creating these habitats in containers. You do not need to have a large garden - the smallest patch can support wildlife, even if just to sustain passing insects with nectar-rich flowers. A chapter on garden plans covers every size of space - from established gardens to a small roof garden or balcony.
