A practical month-by-month guide to attracting birds to your garden
The Bird-friendly Garden helps you to make your garden into a haven for birds, whether it's a balcony, a courtyard or simply a window ledge. Each style of garden features full-page garden plan illustration by Gill Tomblin. There is also a section on unusual gardens, such as those near the coast.
Each one is supplemented by suggestion for the best nest-boxes, feeders and bird-baths to install, as well as the best plants to cultivate. There is practical advice on:
• how to care for the birds in your garden
• how to provide protection from predators
• identification guide
• detailed plant directory
A bird calendar explains season-by-season the different birds you are likely to see in each type of garden, and the correct type of food to provide at different times of the year. The Bird-friendly Garden is the ideal book for all gardeners who enjoy watching birds.
