Gardening for wildlife is both an environmentally sensible activity as well as a great pleasure in itself. This book offers a host of practical suggestions on planning the wildlife garden, attracting, observing and feeding garden wildlife. There is also useful information on the benefits or otherwise of each species to the gardener, and the best 'wildlife-friendly' ways of handling those 'unwanted' visitors. A directory of over 140 common species of mammals, amphibians, reptiles, insects and other invertebrates most commonly encountered in the garden aids identification and offers guidelines on the habitat, food and type of shelter requirements of each species. Produced in a lavish and exciting format, and illustrated with stunning colour photography, much of which has been specially commissioned, this glorious book is both practical and stylish.

"Transforming your garden into a wildlife habitat means designing the garden planting scheme to cater for different species. For instance, butterflies sometimes rely exclusively on a specific plant, like the Swordgrass Brown Butterfly which lays eggs on the gahnia plant and the larvae hatch and feed on the foliage. Nector, seed and insect-eating birds can all be provided for by a careful selection of Australian trees, shrubs, groundcovers and annuals. And in lean times you can attract birds with your homemade bird puddings."--BOOK COVER.

If you yearn to watch blackbirds feeding their young, and butterflies flitting amongst the flowers but you don't have the space for a meadow or want to give your whole garden over to nature, don't despair: with just a few clever tricks you can bring the countryside and its residents to your garden, even in the most urban of locations. Encouraging a little wildlife into your garden can bring a lot of benefits for the gardener. Having a wildlife-friendly garden isn't just about letting nature do its thing so that you can enjoy watching it from your window or the patio, it has a far more important contribution to make. Let nature do the hard work of gardening for you: ladybirds and blue tits will make short work of aphids, while birds, bats and hedgehogs will feast on larger insects. It's biological control at its best; leaving you more time to sit in your deck chair and listen to the dawn chorus of the birds, the croaking of frogs, and the nighttime grunting of visiting hedgehogs. If the natural look of a wildlife garden isn't your thing, you'll be pleased to know that even the most modern, minimalist garden can include features which will bring in wildlife without cramping your style. In this book, the team at Gardeners' World Magazine bring you tips and advice on simple ways in which you can create a haven for wildlife - whatever your garden style.

Gardens mean different things to different people. For some, they are merely another room, an outdoor extension to the house. For others, they are places of relaxation that provide an escape from the outside world. But for most garden owners, the relationship with their plot of land is much more than simply passive: passionate and committed, they enjoy gardening for its own sake, and part of the fun is the prospect of connecting with nature, be it with the plants they cultivate and nurture or with the diverse native wildlife that finds its way into their gardens. This comprehensive photographic guide helps nature enthusiasts to identify the native plants and animals they come across in their gardens, be they welcome or otherwise. Learning about any given species' requirements and its role in garden ecology will allow gardeners to adapt their approach to gardening, enabling them to encourage wildlife while also protecting plants from damage. This reference includes birds, mammals, insects, spiders, trees, wildflowers, fungi, and pond life, along with features on bird nests and eggs and tracks, trails, and signs. Detailed photographs and species descriptions help readers identify each species quickly and easily.
