Update from Meeting held on Monday 9 April 2018

Speaker Stuart “The Wildman” Mabbutt from Oxford gave us a very interesting and entertaining talk about Wildlife in Everyday Gardening.  Stuart had 10 Challenges for us to improve Wildlife in our Gardens which are:

      • 1: Is gardening essential or is it social conditioning?
      • 2: Tidiness is down to interpretation
      • 3: Are you hearing or are you listening? Are you seeing or are you looking
      • 4: Birth is just as important as death and decay (there is no such thing as pest and disease)
      • 5: It’s really only down to 4 things
        • Water
        • Dead wood
        • Different grass heights
        • Different flowers, trees and shrubs
      • 6: Hedgehogs and bee’s
      • 7: The connected garden
        • Corridors in between neighbouring garden
        • You as part of a much bigger picture
      • 8:The alternative garden: moon gardening and ant nests
      • 9: Natives and non-natives are not worth fussing about too much, diversity is what we need. Ethical seeds (buy British seeds not imported ones.)
      • 10: Caring for garden birds.
