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.
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.
