By Elizabeth McCorquodale – 2011
With a spade in one hand and a magnifying glass in the other this book shows you how to create and explore your own wildlife garden and investigates the amazing world of the plants and animals that you can care for in your very own backyard nature reserve.
It’s crammed full of cool facts, cartoons, projects and jokes all wrapped up in an exploration or the natural history of your garden. Growing a tank-full of tadpoles, planting a butterfly garden and a mini-meadow, learning about ants who milk caterpillars, making a bird tree and designing cosy houses for winter visitors are some of the projects that are brought to life in this wonderful book about gardening on the wild side.
This book is written for the UK but many of the projects/information are suitable for Australia and others can be adapted for Australia. A great book for exploring why we need wildlife in the garden!
