The Wildlife Gardener is a book of two parts, offering itself as the perfect companion to creating a wildlife paradise in your outdoor space. The first half is all about creating wildlife habitats in your garden and is split into sections on shelter, food and water. Kate gives advice on what to grow, do's and don'ts of bird feeding and organic methods of pest control. Kate has also devised 10 step-by-step projects that will help encourage wildlife into your garden, such as creating a bumblebee nester, making green roof and building a bird box. These are all achievable in a weekend and suitable for even the smallest gardens. The second part of the book is a mini yet comprehensive field guide to identifying wildlife in your garden. From birds to insects, butterflies to pond-life, nocturnal wanderers to daytime gatherers, Kate provides helpful tips on particular species, telling you what to look out for and how you can create the perfect environment for them. Whether you want to attract the honeybees, create a busy habitat for hundreds of species or simply want to learn more about the fascinating wild world on our doorstep, this modern guide to gardening with nature is a must.
