BEE BAN­QUETS

Plant cro­cus and snakeshead frit­il­lary bulbs, ready to bloom in time to of­fer a rich nec­tar buf­fet for early spring bees.

CLEAN BIRD BOXES

Take ad­van­tage of the last au­tumn sun­shine to spruce up your bird homes ready for next year’s nest­ing sea­son. By law you can clear old birds’ nests be­tween 1 Au­gust and 31 Jan­uary.

GO WILD WITH WOOD

Pile up some logs and dead wood, ide­ally in dap­pled shade, to cre­ate a win­ter shel­ter for a mul­ti­tude of species. Dead wood is par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant for stag bee­tles.
