How to make The Good Garden

FSCN2256DSCN1699Encourage wildlife.

Install batboxes, bumble bee nests, nesting boxes for birds.

Put out food (worms, nuts and feed) and fresh water for birds.

Plant a patch of native wildflowers, to encourage insects, butterflies, bees etc.

Stop using chemicals to kill garden pests. Get rid of aphids with a spray of water left over from the washing up if you have used an eco friendly washing up liquid.
