Plant a tree or shrub

The best planting times are between October and April, but avoid planting in waterlogged soil. If you don’t have a garden, no fear, you can plant trees and shrubs in containers, at any time of the year!

Avoid cutting back hedges and trees in your garden

Birds are nesting and garden hedges not only provide the perfect protection from predators, they also provide vital food sources.

In the UK, its an illegal offence to disturb a nesting site, so, from March through to the end of July, make sure you hold off on trimming back your garden foliage.

Create a log pile in your garden

You can encourage all sorts of animals to your garden by creating log piles. From birds, beetles, frogs and even hedgehogs, you’ll create an animal haven.
If you have a trail camera, try popping it down next to your pile and see what visitors you have!
