There are so many ways that we, the gardener or land owner, can help to increase our wild life friendly habitats. But, of course, all of our situations are different and we don’t always have the time to trawl the internet and bookshops to find the advice we need.
So whether you have a small, medium or large garden or a country, town or city garden. Or whether you’re a land owner, farmer or business this will hopefully be a useful starting point to making a difference and being part of the Wild Flower Revolution.
I’ve compiled this page of links to websites with great information and practical advice to help you achieve your goal. I will add further links as I come across them and welcome your comments and link recommendations. Just click on any of the descriptions below that you are interested in to go straight the relevant website page.
