Wildlife Friendly Plants Make Your Garden a Haven for Beneficial Insects and Birds (Whatever Its Size) by Rosemary Creeser

More and more gardeners are choosing to work with nature - by growing plants that attract beneficial insects and birds to help them control common garden pests or to pollinate home-grown vegetables or fruit. Over the next few years this trend is set to increase as organic gardening gains converts and the range of pesticides approved for domestic use is substantially reduced. But what if, like many new gardeners, you have a small, handkerchief-sized plot and still want to attract beneficial wildlife? For too long wildlife gardening books have tended to focus on those gardening in rural areas with sufficient space to plant large trees and hedges. Wildlife-friendly Plants has been specially designed to help you chose the best plants to encourage and support diminishing populations of wildlife, whether your garden is big or small, in the town or country. Many of these plants are perfect for use in small spaces, such as a patio, terrace or window box. With the valuable suggestions for use, planting and aftercare covered in this book you too can create a haven for beneficial insects, amphibians and birds, irrespective of the size or location of your garden.
