Winter Haven

Create a haven for wildlife in your garden this November. It can be quite simple - no need to buy bug hotels or construct bamboo bee houses - simply use the prunings and clippings of shrubby material to create a dry wildlife stack, out of the way, such as behind a shed or at the back of a border. Any clippings can be used and the pile added to throughout autumn.

Keep mature ivy where possible as the flowers provide a fantastic source of nectar and pollen for late-flying insects. Later in the season the berries will provide food for birds, while the leaves provide shelter for many hibernating species.

If you do fancy a bit of gardening diy try making the winter home for beetles - it's easy peasy!!
