Give Nature a Home by the RSPB

Give Nature a Home

The Give Nature a Home campaign by the RSPB gives you plenty of ideas to help nature find a place to live, where ever you live.

Simple Thing: Create nature corridors

Leave gaps in your fences and plant shrubs, bushes and flowers to provide a covered route for animals to move in between gardens. Brilliant for hedgehogs (who in turn are brilliant for munching slugs who are munching your plants!).

Simple Thing: Create little green patches

Even if you don’t have a garden, you can create spaces where creatures and plants can thrive. There are lots of plants which will grow very happily in containers on balconies or patios, or in window boxes.

Do you have a all concrete or tiled front lawn, to park the car or to reduce maintenance? Why not put a few planters there, so that you are still helping out insects which pollinate flowers and crops as provide little refuges for animals.

Go to the RSPB or any other nature conservation local to you to find out which plants are useful for birds, bees and butterflies.

There are tons of other Simple Things you can do to give Nature a Home, so find out more from the RSPB website and get going!
