Go Wild About Gardens
While the cold weather lingers, garden wildlife needs your help more than ever. Birds need a constant supply of food, so keep feeders topped up and put out kitchen scraps for ground feeders. Break up ice on frozen birdbaths and ponds. Hedgehogs emerging from a long hibernation need to regain weight, so put out cat or dog food for them.
Get your borders ready for pollinators, for when spring finally warms up. Growing a mixture of nectar-rich native and non-native plants will help most wildlife, including butterflies.
The Big Wildlife Garden website has now joined forces with Wild About Gardens, and by early summer there will be a brand new wildlife gardening website for you to visit.
