Wildlife in the garden

24 Feb

A recent trip to the beautiful kitchen garden at Packwood House, Warwickshire highlighted some gorgeous little structures designed to encourage more wildlife such as ladybirds and lacewings into the garden.

A triangular pied a terre for visiting mason bees perhaps.

A beautiful arrangement of old terracotta pots and pine cones – the perfect overwintering spot for ladybirds.

A net of pine cones could be perfect for spiders.

Another welcome animal in the garden is the garden cat who helps keep the mice at bay.

There is however some wildlife not so welcome and this ingenious mole scarer looks amazing ! Whether it works I’m not sure !

    The bee house certainly looks amazing. I still want a insect hotel for my garden.
