Book Description

1 Mar 2007
Increasing numbers of gardeners want to modify their gardening habits to benefit the local wildlife. This is a guide to how it can be done.

Pam Lewis's initial plan for Sticky Wicket, her garden in Dorset, was to take a painterly approach to combining colours in the flower borders. But, as the years passed, she realized that what she really wanted was to strike a balance between her desire for a beautiful garden and the needs of the insects, birds and small mammals that shared it with her.

Pam's garden is now a feast for the eye and one for local wildlife too. This book, an account of the process, is full of valuable information for those who want to learn from her experiences.

A joy to read and jam-packed with information on creating a garden that looks beautiful and provides pollinating insects with food.

Unless we help honeybees, we won't have wine, chocolate, coffee and fruit!!! Of course this is years away, but honeybees are in decline - they pollinate a third of our food, including grapes (which give us wine!) and cocoa beans (which give us chocolate!)

Sticky Wicket is one of world's most beautiful and most important wildlife gardens.

This lovely book is a bible to any gardener who loves wildlife.

Highly recommended.

While this book is written primarily for a British audience, it has served as an inspiration for me in my California garden. This one is worth adding to your horticultural library!
