BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine podcast – Episode 5

As natural habitats disappear, gardens have become vital for the future survival of much of our wildlife, from unseen soil-dwelling creatures to hedgehogs and house sparrows. Monty Don has been observing the wildlife that visits his garden at Longmeadow for decades – and how his gardening has encouraged those creatures to not only visit but stay and contribute to a place that’s full of life. As he publishes his discoveries in a new book about the garden wildlife year, we catch up with him to hear his advice on creating a rewarding space that’s as good for wildlife as it is for you.
