Our back gar­dens are a haven for wildlife but what bat­tles for sur­vival are tak­ing place in our flowerbeds and shrub­beries?

In BBC4’S The Bri­tish Gar­den: Life and Death on Your Lawn, Chris Pack­ham and a team of sci­en­tists chart the wildlife in sev­eral very dif­fer­ent gar­dens in a sin­gle street in Wel­wyn Gar­den City, Hert­ford­shire over a year. They use the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and hidden cam­eras to dis­cover how many dif­fer­ent species live there and which type of gar­den is best for flora and fauna.

‘It’s an in-depth ap­praisal of the value of the great Bri­tish gar­den. All the gar­dens we chose have in­di­vid­ual char­ac­ters, but peo­ple will be sur­prised by the di­ver­sity of life that has adapted to live in that space and how it’s all in­ter­con­nected,’ Chris tells TV Times.
