Gardens for Wildlife

The garden area in England is more than four and a half times larger than that of our National Nature Reserves:

This is a colossal resource of national significance for the thousands of generalist species that can live in our gardens.

Many people are already contributing towards local nature recovery. Be it creating ponds, nest boxes or bug houses to provide homes; planting fruit trees and berry shrubs which are adored by birds; pollinator plants for bees; or lavender and buddleia for butterflies. Some people have planted wildflower seeds or otherwise created wildlife friendly environments. Others have just allowed an area of their garden to re-wild.
