Wildlife Gardening Mini-Habitats

Learn how to create a range of mini-habitats for wildlife in your garden and discover the variety of wildlife that you can attract to your garden.

You tutor Susan will start the session with a bit of a brainstorm of ideas and then you will look at how these habitats can be created in more detail.

You will learn how and why to create a small wildlife pond, a bog garden or even just to provide a sunken tray of water in the garden.

You will learn how to create a bug hotel, from a small bundle of twigs through to a multi-storeyed 5* hotel! You will talk about (and possibly explore) log piles for stag beetles and other invertebrates.

Discover which sort of plants will attract bees and butterflies and discuss planting a native hedgerow in your garden – how, why and where.
