Winter can be a struggle for garden wildlife. However, with a little time and effort from us it is possible to help it survive through those periods when food and shelter may be at a premium.
Garden wildlife may seem to disappear in the cold winter months. However, our friends are merely sleeping, some may be hibernating completely, others occasionally venturing out to seek food or find more efficient shelter.
Whatever their habits, the welfare of garden wildlife during the bleak winter is still our concern, for their presence in our gardens is not only a necessity but a pleasure and joy.
Therefore, most gardeners would agree that we owe it to our garden companions to help them through the winter months so that they'll be around to bring us pleasure in the spring!
