We are holding our very own Wildlife Week from the 3rd April until the 9th April!

We will be running a kids wildlife hunt where children can find different animals around our garden centre, with an activity  worksheet and some facts about wildlife.

We are also holding bug hotel and Easter card workshops throughout half term.

Our bug hotel workshops quickly sold out, but our Easter card workshops are available for booking, just click the link here.

Attract Wildlife To Your Garden

Bug hotels are a great way to encourage bugs in and give them a great environment to live. You can make these yourself or buy one.

Large rocks and stones are a great place for bugs like woodlouse and millipedes, keeping them in your garden near soil will give them a safe home. 

Bushes and hedges are great for hedgehogs to hide in, as well as for birds to nest in. Making sure that your garden is open to birds is so important to keep our ecosystem going. By making or buying bird houses, feeders, and water stations, and putting them in your garden, you will be creating a safe home for birds to make nests and to call their home whilst so much of their home has been lost due to urbanisation.

Hedgehogs like to hide away, hedgehog homes give them a place to return to and keep safe.

"Almost 90% of wild plants and 75% of leading global crops depend on animal pollination. One out of every three mouthfuls of our food depends on pollinators such as bees. Crops that depend on pollination are five times more valuable than those that do not." (WWF)

Bees are so important to encourage into your garden, you can do this by choosing plants that have high pollen and nectar levels

Bee hotels/huts provide warm dry cavities for bees to nest in.
