Gardener’s World Live 2017

At this year’s Gardener’s World Live 2017 show, Wonderful Wildlife was delighted to work with Viv Seccombe of Outside Garden Design and Artemis Landscapes Ltd in the design and development of their wildlife friendly front garden ‘Living in Sync’ was constructed on the APL Avenue at this year’s Gardeners’ World Live show held at the NEC in Birmingham between 15th and 18th June 2017.

Gardeners’ World Live will be celebrating its 50th anniversary and wildlife gardening will be one of the main themes of the show.

Using the experience and knowledge base of Wonderful Wildlife we have worked to source suitable bug friendly materials and filled the beautiful and architectural bug towers and bug boxes, which will make up a major feature of the garden. These are made from recycled wooden pallets, back filled with lots of leaf mulch, so already home to many bugs. In addition we will be designing and supplying our illustrated garden friendly wildlife boards which will be sited on the garden in order to help visitors understand the essential roles of wildlife in our gardens.

Most Shield Bug species are herbivorous (plant eaters), some are omnivorous, feeding on both plants and animals. They suck juices from shrubs, trees or other insects. The younger stages feed only on shoots or unripe seeds of a limited range of plants.
