Benefits of wildlife friendly gardens
Bumble bees and other garden-friendly insects can be encouraged into the garden by what are known as nectar beds. This involves the planting of specific perennials with the correct flower shapes to aid nectar extraction. The benefits of this are better pollination, therefore better fruit, seed production and also the natural control of pests within the garden without compromising the aesthetic value of the border. By introducing the correct plants including some wild flower varieties into the border, you can play your part in the sustainability of insect and plant life.
By using correct shrubs which bear berries during the winter, it is possible to create a winter pantry for native garden birds. This will provide food for birds throughout the winter months, with the added benefit of fruiting shrubs bringing some winter colour to the border. Other varieties may also be introduced to provide forage for birds throughout the year. Hedgehog houses can be supplied and installed in suitable locations.
