At this year’s Gardener’s World Live 2017 show, Wonderful Wildlife worked 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’. The garden won a Silver Merit Medal and was a great success with the public, who were allowed onto the garden to explore beyond the boundary hedges.
The bug towers, which formed the central feature of the garden were well received by the public, with huge interest and inspiration for visitors to take home as to how they could re-create the ideas in the garden and make space for a wildlife friendly garden, no matter how small the space.
Over 5,000 leaflets on ‘How to Make a Bug Tower’ were handed out over the four day show. There is clearly a huge interest among British gardeners as to how they can encourage wildlife in their garden and it was great to see such enthusiasm.
