World land Trust Conservation gardening tips

This information sheet was sent to me last week, remember when I promoted the 'Donate your Garden' fundraiser project. I keep it for a slightly quieter time on the blog...say a long weekend... before I shared it. I know many of these suggestions aren't new to us but in reality I have to do much better at not cleaning up, of finally getting a dustbin lid pond sorted etc... It's great to be gently reminded xx

Their list looked dull so I jazzed it up :)
Is it just me or our there 11, not 10 as advertised in their header? :)

  2. However many there are listed it's all good advice most of which I do on the plot. It doesn't matter that it's not new information and it's always worth mentioning again as you've done here. Flighty xx

    1. Ahh we think the same way. There is so much to think about that sometimes simple things escape us xxx

  3. Definitely 11.

    I don't think birds are fussy about whether flowers are native or not - many ornamentals provide food although some butterflies and other insects needs particular plants.

    Also I did try to research light pollution and there is some disagreement about whether it affects wildlife.

    We have fish in our pond which do eat amphibian eggs but it is why the amphibians lay so many and the fish at least mean we are not plagued with mosquitoes.

    Sorry to contradict World Land Trust but sometimes organisations make things moire prescriptive that they need tiobe

    1. Contradiction is fine, especially when you have tried the tips yourself! I love to hear how and if these tips work xx

  4. While I don't have a plot, we have been doing some of these things in our backyard, especially the idea of more native plants and plants that provide both shelter for birds, as well as food. We keep a bluebird box, which has been great fun to watch, but it does have to cleaned after use!

    Right now, we have an unusual bluebird who's become a regular at one of our feeders. Our resident bird experts tell us bluebirds don't "regularly" visit feeders, unless the feeder has insects. This little one comes every day and we checked, it's not for insects. Just goes to show that there's an exception to every rule. On the other hand, I quite enjoy the visits:~)

I love to have visitors but LOVE it even more when they leave a little nugget of happiness behind in the form of a comment. I thank you for taking the time to send a little joy my way xx
