This is the ultimate gardening book for all wildlife lovers, written by the leading expert in the field. This book debunks the myth that you need to grow a jungle to attract wildlife, and instead shows how to create suitable habitats without compromising on the aesthetics. The book begins by examining the appeal of gardening for wildlife and why it is ecologically beneficial to do so, then goes on to teach the essential principles for creating wildlife-friendly habitats. A detailed resources section provides contact details for specialist suppliers and conservation organisations.
