I think alot of the disapearing wildlife is due to the way we are living our lives.Roof extentions are everywhere as are gravel and bricked over front gardens where no hedgehog can live or birds in the cold sterile surroundings.I like tidy garden but to have one perfect and no wild over patches is a bad thing for wildlife,along with our interferences with the natures chain.
lovely day gardening ,makes you feel so much better .Even mowed the lawn.
you cant expect a super store to have its own nursery they dont work like that.They could not possible do this.They have buying power and can have a say in what they want from a producer.
get rid of the rubble,Camillias do not like lime and prefer Erichaous soil.
Monty don,I should imangine from his wages.
if you do a small box hedge,it would look nice as long as it is kept low.Thinking of doing similar but inportant to keep clipped and low.
marginal plants are what you need,I have kingcup marshmarigold,reeds,water iris.watermint,plants that live near edge of ponds .
I must go down to the shed again,
the lonely dark and damp shed,
I left my fork and shovel there,
I left them there with out care
and my hubby will go spare!
