Planting with Nature: A Guide to Sustainable Gardening

By (author) Kirsty Wilson; Illustrated by Hazel France

By reimagining how we design and use our gardens, we can all do our bit to support local wildlife, improve our health and help tackle the climate crisis. If we all take positive steps in our gardens, no matter how small, we can all really make a difference in the world. This book focuses on the activities and planting suitable for a Scottish climate but also contains lots of useful information relevant for gardeners throughout the UK. Practical information on planning is followed by expert guidance on: planting for wildlife in nectar-rich borders, wildflower meadows, hedgerows, trees and shrubs. Building for wildlife with bird boxes, bug boxes, feeders and ponds; green gardening approaches with fruit and veg production, rain gardens, green roofs, compost making and creating new plants through propagation; and attracting birds, bees, butterflies and other insects, aquatic life and nightlife.
