The RHS Garden for Wildlife showcased different habitats for invertebrates, birds, reptiles, amphibians and small animals that can easily be incorporated into any domestic garden.
The garden included a small pond with sloping pebble bank and marginal planting, nooks and crannies within rocks and log piles, densely planted with wildlife friendly garden plants including wildflower meadow, nectar rich flowers, trees and hedgerow plants, sedum roof and areas of long grass to help attract a diverse range of creatures.
A myriad of simple ‘add-on’ ideas also featured in the garden including bee hotels, bug houses, bird boxes, baths, feeders and compost heap.
The RHS Garden for Wildlife was won by competitive tender. It was not a judged garden but a ‘Feature Show Garden’ created to inspire visitors to the show to help create their own wildlife friendly spaces and features.
