With more time on my hands, I'm tackling horrid areas of ivy, bindweed and other nasties but realise with things becoming more organised into flower and veg beds, there is little cover. As I tried to clear the last bit for a pea/ bean bed, I discovered the slow worms (nearly sliced them up with the spade!) I had only ever noticed before in my compost heaps. I would willingly give up the veg bed to give these lovely creatures some cover but don't want weeds like before. Any suggestions for something attractive but practical so that I do not lose the slow worms forever?
