Clive takes us on a short trip to Decoy Field allotment, and describes the corner that has been designed to encourage nature and wildlife.
Here’s a story about the rise of the Decoy Allotment Wildlife Garden.
Stephen thinks about containerized pond planting and puts down some ideas on paper.
The Bug Hotel ‘ Newton Hilton’ Mike Daniels built this one out of reclaimed materials, ready for things to ‘move in.’
Planting added and starts to grow in very rapidly by the summer of the first year.
Water lilies and other pond planting that Stephen planned soon flourish and look as if they have been growing on the site for years.
Seating is added and Christine scoups out algae that has grown. A bird bath made out of an old log is placed in a quite area. Nosey Neighbours on the plot opposite! An Orange Tip Butterfly takes a sip of nectar from a periwinkle flower. A Tiger Moth on the Buddleia. A wonderful visitor early one morning in the Reptile Basking Area.
