Gardening for wildlife is both an environmentally sensible activity as well as a great pleasure in itself. This book offers a host of practical suggestions on planning the wildlife garden, attracting, observing and feeding garden wildlife. There is also useful information on the benefits or otherwise of each species to the gardener, and the best 'wildlife-friendly' ways of handling those 'unwanted' visitors. A directory of over 140 common species of mammals, amphibians, reptiles, insects and other invertebrates most commonly encountered in the garden aids identification and offers guidelines on the habitat, food and type of shelter requirements of each species. Produced in a lavish and exciting format, and illustrated with stunning colour photography, much of which has been specially commissioned, this glorious book is both practical and stylish.
