Nothing brings life and vibrancy to your outdoor space than garden wildlife. Picture a luscious garden brimming with plants, colour and life. A butterfly paradise, a haven for bees and a place for chirping birds to call home. Caring for your garden wildlife is a year-round task, not just for the summer. You'll find lots of handy tips and tricks you can use to help convert your garden into a wildlife success.
Caring for Garden Wildlife

How to Help Wildlife Survive Winter
While we snuggle under the covers in the winter, the animals scurry around finding shelter and food. If you want to make the punishing season go easier on them, there are many ways to do so! One very easy way to help the wildlife near your home is by leaving out some food for them. Doing so will also allow you an opportunity to observe the foraging animals as they wander close to your house to feed on what has been left out.
