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.

Watch out for molehills starting to appear

Keep your eyes peeled for moles diging around in your garden! They are notoriously hard to spot, so, if you have a trail camera, you might have more chance at catching a glimpse during the night. The camera might even spot animals you weren’t aware of. See how many species you can name!

Let your garden grow wild!

Whilst still feeling the brunt of the latest strom to pass over the UK. Why not take advantage of the bad weather and skip the gardening for a while (or at least a little part of it!).
