About

Divided into different areas, the wildlife garden gives visitors a taste of the different habitats that can be created in a small space and is crammed with ideas and inspiration to help people make a difference for wildlife in their own patch.

The wildlife garden is perfectly formed with different areas of interest - ponds, hedgerows, woodland and a meadow, as well as fruit and a vegetable patch.

There is plenty of wildlife making the most of these varied habitats including garden birds like blue tits, long-tailed tits and robins, as well as insects such as butterflies, shield bugs, ladybirds and solitary bees.

Wander through the meadow, sample the herbs and sit back and enjoy the wildlife from the seating areas dotted about the garden.

You can also enjoy two demonstration gardens, showing that even with a very small space you can still make room for wildlife.

Volunteers have also created a fernery which lead you seamlessly into the mini woodland.
