My Wild Garden

The My Wild Garden project aims to help people learn how they can create a wildlife-friendly garden in their own outdoor space.

We are currently producing a month-by-month guide to wildlife gardening, which will be available in the summer as a limited edition hard copy or as a download. Sign up here to be the first to find out about the release date. You can also find out more about wildlife gardening on our web pages here.

We also have some very exciting plans for a big wildlife gardening event to take place in Bute Park this summer. Watch this space and sign up to be kept in the loop.

The RHS and The Wildlife Trusts have created a wildlife gardening website, giving advice on how to encourage wildlife into your garden.
