How Can I Increase Local Biodiversity ?
Make your Garden a Wildlife Haven
If you have access to a Garden, Growing Containers or a Window Box you can plant native British wild flowers to increase the food sources for pollinators. It could be a wild flower bed, a wild flow strip in the lawn, or wild flower container. See pictures below of some wild flowers growing in the Parish. Find out how to plant wild flowers here.
Let the Grass Grow
Create a Home for Wild Life
Create a bug hotel to provide hidey-holes for creatures galore. Building a bug hotel (also known as a wildlife hotel or stack) in your garden can provide a safe hideaway for wildlife and help make use of your garden waste. A well-built hotel can shelter anything from hedgehogs to toads, solitary bees to bumblebees, and ladybirds to woodlice. You can build your bug hotel at any time of year, but you might have the most natural materials such as straw, dry grass and hollow plant stems in autumn.
