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.
