Tour of my wildlife garden – tips for how to make your garden wildlife friendly

Wildlife gardening
Standard

Join me on this little tour of some of the wildlife friendly features in my garden including compost heaps, hedgehog houses, water bowls and an insect hotel. Spring is a great time to be getting your garden ready for wildlife and hedgehogs emerging from hibernation.

If I’ve inspired you to make your garden more wildlife friendly, here are my pages with lots of advice on completing your transformation.

In addition, I don’t use any pesticides or herbicides anywhere in the garden. Slug pellets are also banned!

I run a hedgehog rescue in York, England. Like all wildlife rescues, my work is entirely self funded. You can find out more about my work here. If you’ve been inspired to support my work, you can do so here.

I’d love to see your pictures of your wildlife garden and any top tips you have for attracting wildlife into your garden.
