The Wildlife Garden

With the decline of some of our most precious wildlife there is no better time than now to start gardening for wild visitors. The Wildlife Garden book by John Lewis-Stempel explores how valuable our gardens have become in providing a source of food and shelter for Britain's fauna and flora.

The book provides an essential guide to attracting birds, butterflies, bumblebees, hedgehogs, grasshoppers and a whole array of other creatures into your back garden, even if all you have is a window box. Divided into 10 chapters, you will find all you need on planning a wildlife garden, growing a wildflower lawn, putting in a pond for for frogs, creating your own woodland glade, putting together rockeries and coastal gardens, making animal shelters and much more. The book is full of information on what plants are best for wildlife, how to add scent and colour to your outdoor space and even how to create a wildlife-friendly fruit and vegetable plot - so you'll have everything you need to start making a home for nature.


The Wildlife Garden: The Essential Guide to Attracting Wildlife into Your Garden by John Lewis-Stempel, published by Constable & Robinson Ltd, is available to buy from all good book stores, RRP £8.99.
