There is full information on what plants are best for wildlife, on how to make refuges for insects and homes for bats, on making a pool for frogs, all whilst adding scent and colour to your surroundings.

    A must have for everybody going to create a wildlife garden. After having read John's MEADOWLAND I knew I would have to buy all his books on nature. And this new one assured me that I have been right.Everything you have to know is so concentrated, so well written to the point. No photographs, no pictures, nearly no drawings, absolutely no paraphernalia, but the most important things and the really working ones are presented in the clearest and straightest way imaginable. This is a man who knows what he has to tell, with an unmatched knowledge got out of really DOING it, real work, a lifetime's experience. But watch out, every sentence, every word is of importance. This is a distillate of knowledge, so extremely focused, that you probably will be able to estimate it's full virtue only if having read some minor publications before. Look at all those - admittedly sometimes stunning - photographs, lukewarm and shallow instructions in some other books on this topic, and then come back to John's top-class writing. If there is something out there able to rival it, have a look at Jenny Steel's books! She too tells you only the really working things, drawing from a lifetime's experience in the same way.To tell the truth: I am desperate to see this book lavishly illustrated by adequate photographs and drawings. I would pay any price for such an unmatchable book.

    Don't let this book's small size and lack of pictures put you off - it is absolutely packed with useful information, written in a concise yet enthusiastic fashion. This guy knows his stuff!I own several books on wildlife gardening, all of them large and full of lovely glossy pictures but I feel like I have learnt a great deal more from this one and it is the one book I flick through again and again, absorbing all the author's snippets of wisdom before I head out into the garden or off to my local garden centre.I wish a copy of this book could be given out to every garden-owner in the UK!!

    I highly recommend this book. It's an absolute must for anyone interested in wildlife gardening. It's just brilliant, I wish I had read it sooner. Along with other publications on the topic that I've been reading recently, it changed my attitude to gardening. I've always loved wildlife but now I know how much more I can do to help it. This little book is so informative, comprehensive, practical and enthusing. Besides, the author has a great sense of humour. I laughed out loud a few times while reading. I'd love to see an illustrated version of this book in the future. I've read it once but will certainly read it again as it has so much useful information.
