From hanging feeders to bird tables, nuts and seeds to DIY treats, there are low-cost ways to keep garden birds fed year round.
As well as planting pollinator friendly flowers, you can attract butterflies with a feeder that provides sugar and water.
Including trees and shrubs with berries gives birds and mammals seasonal treats to enjoy.
From blossom for pollinating insects to fruit for animals (including you), fruit trees are a wildlife gardener’s friend.
Some bees and other pollinating insects come out of hibernation early. Spring bulbs and other flowers can help them thrive.
As bees buzz from flower to flower feeding on nectar, they transport pollen on their bodies. This helps flowers and crops fertilise and reproduce.
A good selection of later-flowering plants for pollinators will help to keep your garden insect population diverse.
Bird baths, ponds, water features and shallow dishes (with pebbles to land on) keep wildlife hydrated in any weather.
Even a small tub or barrel filled with water can provide a habitat where insects and amphibians can thrive.
Recycle garden and kitchen waste, make your own compost, and create a warm home for invertebrates to hide in.
Areas where logs, twigs, bricks or stones are left will quickly become home to a wide range of wild species.
Don’t dispose of autumn leaves. Rake them into tidy piles and wild animals can use them to shelter or hibernate.
A wide variety of trees and shrubs provide valuable shelter and habitats for birds, insects and small mammals.
Whether planted with wildflowers or just left unmown, areas of long grass will soon become biodiverse habitats.
Easily made by assembling bricks, wood and other materials – or buying a ready made structure for bugs to crawl into.
You can welcome a variety of bird species to nest, with the right bird box in the right place.
Building a home for hedgehogs to feed, sleep and hibernate in is a great way to protect this declining species.
Not all bees live in hives! Solitary species will appreciate hollow stems or holes drilled in wood or bricks to hide in.
Flat roofs can be cleverly planted to provide insulation, drainage and a home for birds and insects.
Hardwood prunings can be cleverly arranged as a garden feature, providing structure, wind protection and habitats.
A large garden is anything bigger than an average tennis court.
