    I love the birds coming into my garden... they provide hours of free amusement with their antics - though I do " pay " mine for the enjoyment they provide as I give THEM seed !!!.This great little book of 120 odd pages is just bursting with useful information - covering all our wonderful British seasons; all types of gardens & from wildlife lawns & meadows ( what a beautiful word, so very evocative of England ) to managing water; from ponds to feeding the birds & putting up nest boxes; composting & including our lovely native wild flowers with their charming names . Even weeds such as stinging nettles are useful to our wildlife friends & they won't take over & ruin the garden if planted carefully.You don't need a huge garden to make it wildlife friendly & of course you don't need to include everything - but it will make a HUGE difference to our wildlife welfare & populations -this book will help you on the way.There are even garden plans to be copied if you find designing for wildlife a bit daunting - as of course, we don't all have the skills & knowledge Alan does!. Plus WE have to work to a budget, usually, & these plans will ensure a pleasing & wildlife friendly garden with no costly mistakes !.This book is really lovely, with so much information on what to plant for our wildlife - a hugely important thing, when our bird, butterfly & bee populations are in decline. HUMANS need bees, particularly & butterflies are said to be the indicators of a good, natural environment .And it's all SO easy to do - you can buy balls of seed, wild flower plug plants & even pre seeded Gromats, which will develop into the species of plants our wildlife needs - no messing about with seeds in trays, propagators & the like.

    Certainly a book to dip into. It's well organised and will prove really helpful if you want ideas for a garden for wildlife as iyou can adapt ideas for all sizes of gardens. I like the fact that Alan covers all areas in the garden whether it is wet or dry, sunny or in shade and layout suggestions will provide ideas so I am pleased I bought it.
