Keep your garden wildlife friendly while on holiday!

 

Off on your holidays? Here's some simple tips to keep your garden wildlife friendly while you're away!

  1. Bees and insects will benefit from a
    bowl withwater in, pop in some stones
    or marbles to give them places to
    stand and drink!
    Provide water! Leave a shallow bowl of water out, with some pebbles in, for insects and birds. If you have a pond, make sure you have some ways for wildlife to get in and out the water if the level drops while you're away - using plants or bricks and stones.
  2. #Nomow! Leave the grass unmown and let the 'weeds' in dandelions, daisies and buttercups will thrive and the insects will enjoy them!
  3. Make a log pile! Or pile dead sticks together and create a shady refuge for wildlife, spiders and earwigs will love these spaces!
  4. Make a hole in your fence! This will need to be done with the agreement of your neighbours, but a small hole at the bottom of the fence will allow small mammals and amphibians to move in and out of your garden.
  5. Trimmings! If you have been neatening bushes and shrubs before leaving, pile up your trimmings to provide another valuable refuge for wildlife in your garden!

Of course, you don't need to stop doing these things when you get back from your holidays, just keep gardening for wildlife all year round!
