OUT I N THE GAR­DEN

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Wild At Home -

FRESH FLOW­ERS

Keep your plants pro­duc­ing nec­tar for bees and other pol­li­na­tors by re­mov­ing faded blooms from bed­ding plants and peren­ni­als.

ON THE LOOK­OUT

Young frogs, toads and hedge­hogs will be be­gin­ning to emerge, so take care when mow­ing and strim­ming.

CLEAR WA­TER

Ex­cess blan­ket weed can be a prob­lem in ponds – de­oxy­genat­ing the wa­ter and potentiall­y harm­ing aquatic life. Care­fully re­move the weed but leave it close to the pond for a while, so any wildlife can make its way back.
