Go Wild About Gardens

Although the early part of the month can be as balmy as September, October is often the month Autumn really begins to bite, especially when the clocks go back and it is suddenly dusk by 5pm. Our garden visitors begin to look for more food to help them get through the coming winter, and we gardeners can make a real difference to their survival.
