Your chance to make a difference .... and free seed pack!
All you keen gardeners out there can help. All you need to do is make one change in your garden. Most gardeners and allotmenteers are great at recycling, take the compost bin for a brilliant example. Even if you have limited space one small change can make a difference.
Some other ideas are :
* build a bee hotel
* plants that attract bees; I have allimums and the bees and moths love them. Here is a picture taken last year
* make a log shelter (I have recycled drift wood from an old fish tank! Not only does it look good it helps the local bugs.
* recycle something
* catch the rain - introduce a water but. That reminds me I must do that this year!
* plant a hedgerow or tree
For further information why not visit RHS biodiversity to read more useful information.
The RHS Advisory Team will be showing what you can do to encourage biodiversity in your garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. I will be going to Chelsea on the 28th May, so I'll add some photos in a future posting.
Why not send me your photos of what you have done to make a difference in your own garden. The winner will receive a pack containing seeds from Wiggly Wigglers and some other useful gardening stuff.
