I love pelargoniums but, since watching Sarah Raven's Bees, Butterflies and Blooms have renewed my vow to make an effort to plant wildlife friendly plants and bedding. There seems to be a dilemma: annuals and bedding need to be watered regularly. Can we be wildlife friendly and save water? Mulching is difficult between annual plants, newly planted trees and shrubs MUST be watered (planting in Autumn is probably the answer there) veg and salad need water....... another gardeners' challenge! What is the answer?
