We were really excited to be featured in the Guardian Supplement and online last weekend. If you didn’t see it, take a look, there are some great tips about supporting wildlife in your garden as well as a section on houseplants and how to get them in good shape too.
We fully believe that a garden for wildlife can be a gorgeous one and constantly talk about keeping away from ‘tidying’. Ditching the manicured lawns for grasses and nature. If you turn your garden over to nature it will do all the work for you and the reward will be much greater than a slice of green lawn.
Here are some more articles that we’ve written to help you get your garden in good shape for birds:
We’ve also written about how to attract different types of birds to your garden:
Ultimately in your garden birds need good habitat, trees and hedges, food and water. It’s quite simple really. You can also do things like adding Nestboxes to your garden to support them nesting or create ivy and hedging for birds like Robins, Wrens and Blackbirds that won’t use a nestbox in the tree.
Excerpt from the Guardian Article:

Birds will be nesting about now, so try to avoid pruning your hedges and trees, too.
