They will attract many different insects, such as damsel- and dragonflies, but also amphibians and will allow birds and mammals of many kinds to drink. In addition, water plants will bring new shapes and colours to your garden.

A practical, passionate, colour-illustrated guide to siting, creating, planting and maintaining a perfect wildlife refuge. --Oxford TimesWritten by a noted gardener and ecologist, the book is divided into various sections, guiding the reader from the virtues of wildlife ponds, the importance of gardens as a wildlife habitat to creating, planting and maintaining ponds of all sizes down to those in containers. Chapters explore and profile the various types of wildlife to attract.

    Very useful book. We haven't started making our pond yet, but it will be extremely helpful when we do.

    Great book and very useful. It tells me all the information I need to set up the wildlife pond I so dearly want in my garden. I'm enjoying my read.

    The tiniest is the winner? How that? Reading this booklet of only 32 pages ( new 2016 edition with 80 pages and many photographs) makes you wonder why you did spend all that money for thick and shiny books on this topic. You looked at those stylish photographs and probably were afraid of the costs for sophisticated fountains and circulating pumps. Maybe you racked your brains, if you wanted goldfish or koi carp. Oh dear! Forget it all ! Jenny Steel knows the facts and tells you the truth, how you can create a real wildlife pond teeming with wildlife. Her expertise is one of a child fascinated by water creepy crawlies - really charming to read her short notes on that - up to an outstanding scientific background. But in the first place she fascinates with her skill to tell the most important things in a straightforward language, always helpful and friendly and absolutely to the point. No rubbish, no nonsense, no pretentious paraphernalia. After having read all those expensive books I am quite shocked about the difference. And I only can admire this author for her giftedness. Every sentence is a true one, an important one, a helping one. The scales fell from my eyes, when I read the booklet. Everything is covered, but remember, only really important things. Important for attracting wildlife. This booklet is a real eye-opener. I count myself so happy about finally having discovered this precious book. THANK YOU, Jenny Steel !
