With many of us spending more time than ever in our gardens over the past year, we've discovered the vivid sights and sounds of wildlife all around us. And with that has grown a passion to discover more and turn our gardens into havens where wildlife not only survives but thrives. Alan Titchmarsh has had a lifelong fascination with wildlife – and describes gardeners as frontline naturalists, up close and personal with the natural world. He reveals the small steps anyone can take to make their garden a haven for wildlife – and his delight at sharing these moments with his grandchildren, along with his hopes for the future.
