How to Encourage Wildlife in the garden
Under sensitive management in co-operation with nature any garden is certain to be attractive to wildlife. Organic soils are a haven for tiny organisms from earthworms down to microscopic nematodes. The same is true of the surface of the soil where new life is constantly being created by the soil and the plants that grow in it. Here there comes a new layer of wildlife: the slugs and snails that feed on decaying matter, the ground beetles and spiders and the mice and garden birds.

- The purpose of encouraging wildlife into the garden is to try and keep the cycles of nature as full and active as possible while providing pleasure to the observer. To this end the management of our soils and plants is critical whether it is feeding the soil with organic matter, leaving windfall apples on the ground or allowing seed heads to remain on plants until the contents of the pods are finished by birds, animals or insects.
- It is important to understand that when we carry out any type of gardening the most important contributor to a project is nature and we must try and work with her rather than against her. This DVD will explain the thinking behind ecological wildlife gardening and the fantastic benefits it can bring to humans, plants and gardens.
- Through a close up of the type of plants recommended we will be able to see the type of wildlife that is attracted, how to enjoy them if they are favourable and how to move them on if not.
