The book provides an introduction to the wild plants and creatures for each month, together with seasonal tips, tasks, checklists and detailed plant profiles. It offers easy-to-follow practical projects to create new habitats, such as making a wildlife pond, building a nest box, planning a herb bed, planting a summer meadow, and more.
