Wildlife gardening...hopes for the future

Ever an optimist I think slowly the tide is turning and everyone is slowly waking up.

On a garden scheme I visted this year the local primary school was one of the gardens featured Got shown round by one of the pupils

This is my first garden, the majority of my plants are here because they attract wildlife

Hi new to the forum and looking for design ideas

Like the curvy bed,  I've got something similar. As well as the annuals are you thinking of something more permanent? Aubretia looks lovely trailing over walls and gives a lovely splash of colour

Would think it's a good time to plant perennials and biennuals now as the soil is warm

Hello Alison, what flowers do you have in there?

Flowering almondii

Funny you should say that I have a very rampant Clematis Montana that has given off a few flowers in the last week

Perennials

I had some perennial plugs in the past, in my case they were so tiny that I had to overwinter them before they were big enough to be planted out the following year. What types have you got and how big are they?

Geranium attack!

Probably are cabbage whites, I would just pick them off. It's late in the season both won't be here that much longer

Looks as if the couple of packets of seed have done you well. I've tried mixes of woodland, perennials and wildflowers from the likes of johstones etc.

It's been enough to get things started but on the whole I find that growing the actually plant/flower from seed that you want has been quicker, better and cheaper.....you can collect the seed as well
