It’s that fantastic time of year when, in spite of the weather, something special starts to happen in our gardens and countryside.

Good morning lovelies. It's another blustery day in south west #Devon today. I came across these teasels on a walk, I absolutely adore them as to the goldfinches. I'm planning on growing one or two in my garden this year. #wildlifegardening #devonlife #nature #coastalliving #swisbest #countrylife

Excited for the newly created, edible, wildlife-friendly, food forest garden! I used logs to create the raised beds, providing habitats for endangered critters such as Stag beetles amongst others. I planted it up with ground covering goodies, such as #strawberries #creepingherbs #creepingthyme, and used edging plants such as lavender to brush past and release a beautiful scented aroma (in addition to providing flowers for pollinators!). I used tree kale to have a green presence (in addition to one on my plate!), and filled it up with various fruit bushes, trees and nut trees 🙂 #allotment #gardening #horticulture #wildlifegardening #lograisedbeds, #stagbeetles #ediblegardening #ediblelandscaping #wildlifecorridor #permaculture #foodforest #growfood #perennialgarden

A small creeping herb is towered in the background by a variety of taller crops. With a bit of planning, it’s possible to gets lots more food from a patch of land in your garden. Here, we look to mimic the differing layers of a forest habitat in order to get lots of food whilst also providing a hedge/privacy for our garden and a refuge for beneficial wildlife in the form of a wildlife corridor. Creeping herbs and strawberries provide ground cover - keeping weeds in check! Planted on the edge, lavender and other aromatic plants provide wafts of pleasant smells as one brushed past them - in addition to an easy picking for the kitchen! Medium sized fruit bushes and crops such as Globe Artichokes make up the under storey layer of our food forest, providing us with fruit, delicacies and flowers for pollinators! Tree kale provides us with some greenery in the winter months, whilst Crab apples, elder, hazel amongst others, are our top growing layer, the canopy, and provide us with fruit and nuts. Dog roses and other climbers, grow and wind themselves towards the light and provide us with goodies also 🙂 #perennialgarden #allotment #gardening #horticulture #growfood #foodforest #wildlifecorridor #wildlifegardening #growfood #organic #naturalfood #homegrown #permaculture #botany

My companion in the garden this morning, enjoying all the bugs and grubs exposed as I cleared storm damage. #wildlifegardening #robin

Wild edges! Along the fence in my back garden I have wild areas. Here daffodils are emerging amongst wild strawberries and yellow archangel. The twigs in the background were left for creatures to hibernate in over winter. The yellow archangel is very invasive so I have to stop it trying to take over this area, but the flowers are such good forage for bees that I let it grow here under blackcurrant and gooseberry bushes. #gdnbloggers #wildlifegardening #polyculture

A little video of our sparrow army enjoying our very basic and not pretty, but much used "pond" . Which is a bucket with water , rocks and some oxygenating plant in it to keep it fresh water.
There is a bit of roof tile just below the surface which the birds love to use to have a bath. It doesn't take much to encourage the wildlife into your garden, just maybe a bit of patience 😊

First plant I’ve coughed up for: female ilex verticillata or ‘winterberry’ thanks to @burncoose_nurseries_. A non-native so quite the scandal for some wildlife gardeners, its gloriously red bounty is irresistible to berry-eating birds. Remaining potted for a while until I decide on location and seek out a male partner for it, advice welcome! 😍

White dead-nettle in the Dolomites a few weeks ago, with its lovely whorls of white flowers full with a last supply of nectar for the bees before the winter.

Hedera helix. European ivy. Not my favourite, but the flowers are visited by about 70 species of nectar-feeding insects in summer and at this time of year the berries are eaten by at least 16 species of birds. The foliage also provides shelter for nests. According to NASA English ivy has great air-purifying qualities. So I think of that when I see it in the hedges and woods. #gardeningforwildlife #plantchoices #wildlifegardening #plantsforinsects #plantsforbirds #ivy #hederahelix #britishplants #gardening

Another job we completed during the holidays was putting our wind chimes which my class made from old keys in place in the wildlife garden. It sounds brilliant! Lulu #wildlifegardening #upcycling

Berries and blue skies! A dry spring and a warm and wet summer made the perfect combination for fruit development last year. The birds are loving it!

The small pond is frozen today but in a few weeks it will be seething with frogs!

Believe it or not this is actually a before then after photo. Part of me if thinking "ahahah will we ever get there!", been trying to look up allotment blogs to give me hope 😀 my main mission was to get an idea what was going on and making sure it's safe to strim and no wildlife underneath

We finished off my school's bug hotel by popping the sign made by my class in place during the Christmas holidays. Perfect! Lulu x #wildlifegardening #bughotels
