Book Description

9 May 2013
Kate Bradbury is passionate about making the most of what the natural world has to offer. The Wildlife Gardener is a book of two parts, offering itself as the perfect companion to creating a wildlife paradise in your outdoor space.

The first half is all about creating wildlife habitats in your garden and is split into sections on shelter, food and water. Kate gives advice on what to grow, do's and don'ts of bird feeding and organic methods of pest control. Kate has also devised 10 step-by-step projects that will help encourage wildlife into your garden, such as creating a bumblebee nester, making green roof and building a bird box. These are all achievable in a weekend and suitable for even the smallest gardens.

The second part of the book is a mini yet comprehensive field guide to identifying wildlife in your garden. From birds to insects, butterflies to pond-life, nocturnal wanderers to daytime gatherers, Kate provides helpful tips on particular species, telling you what to look out for and how you can create the perfect environment for them.

Whether you want to attract the honeybees, create a busy habitat for hundreds of species or simply want to learn more about the fascinating wild world on our doorstep, this modern guide to gardening with nature is a must.

A beautifully written and well composed book. The photography is outstanding and each section so easy to follow. It's interesting, insightful and actually inspirational. A true gem of a book for garden novices as well as the more green-fingered amongst us!

Fantastic book, full of useful information, practical tips and things to try in your own garden. Particularly found the bee identification and nest info useful - I've even discovered I have a bumble bee nest I didn't know I had previously!
