Grow a sunflower and watch the birds eat the seeds

Sunflowers are not only beautiful plants, they can also help feed your local garden birds.

Try growing 1 or 2 in your garden, from a tiny seed, right the way through to a tall, swaying giant. Keep your eyes peeled for those hungry garden birds and write down all the species you can identify.

Make a bumblebee house

You can create all kinds of bumble bee houses throughout your garden – different species prefer different areas – some high up, some low down and even underground! Try recycling an old flower pot to create an underground haven: upturn your pot and make two small entrance holes (top and bottom), place a little soil around the edges and a little nesting material inside. 

To encourage bees and other insects to your garden, see some of our other iDot ideas!
