Your garden can make a difference.
Promoting biodiversity simply means you recognise the circle of life and how everything is interconnected. As a gardener you have a unique opportunity to make a difference to the cause of biodiversity. And a garden full of the buzzing of the bees, the song of the birds and the croaking of the Frogs is much more interesting than one which is beautiful but is devoid of animal life. It’s alive, as will be your joy when you notice how life begets life, how biodiversity encourages more biodiversity, how the more you plant for wildlife the more it visits, or comes to life in your garden.
Invite wildlife into your Garden.
Plants and animals have different needs and live in different habitats. Here are some simple ideas to make your garden into a home for wildlife:
1. Make a wildlife pond.
2. Create a ‘quiet’ part of the garden
with dense planting.
3. Make a pile of rocks or build a wall.
4. Relax, let animals chomp leaves and flowers – enjoy the beauty of insects instead.
JUST FOR FUN
Keep your eyes open for new wildlife arrivals throughout the seasons. Record your suburban wildlife sightings with a camera or notebook.
