With the help of this practical, pocket-sized book, you can create not only a fascinating miniature nature reserve but also an attractive garden. The contents include: The Garden Habitat; Mammals; Birds; Amphibians and Reptiles; and, Insects and Invertebrates. The projects and special features include: creating a wildflower meadow or wildlife pond; looking after injured, baby and hibernating hedgehogs; making a bat roost or bat box, and sitting it; planting a butterfly garden; and making a compost heap.
