Wildlife Gardening With Wild at Heart

 

 We teamed up with Drink Wise, Age Well and together we made a marvellous Bug Hotel at LEAF Allotments.

 

 

Throughout April 2016 we had the Container Gardening for Wildlife expert Chris Prime come to the Wild at Heart sessions. We planted up tubs with Sage, lavender, fennel, thyme and chives all will appeal to bees and other polinating insects as well as offering a sensory delight to humans!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also made a bee bath with a shallow dish filled with glass beads and pebbles, then topped up with water. This will help reduce the chance of bees drowning as they will be able to climb out of the dish and fly away. This is much more difficult for them if they land on open water.
