Number 49 – Wildlife-friendly garden

Continuing from encouraging bees (‘Number 44’), I have decided to make our garden as supportive of wildlife as possible. Over the next weeks, I plan to do the following things in our garden:

* A few days ago I put up a bird feeder which can feed 4 birds at the same time, and the seed mix I put inside is specially designed for wild birds in New Zealand.

* I will plant some berry bushes, to attract more birds.

* Create a ‘native bush’ area in our garden by growing native plants that attract native wildlife.

* Build a bird bath.

* Make a ‘minibeast hotel’ to attract different insects and invertebrates.
