Planting for Pollinators - Improving your garden for wellbeing and wildlife

Tuesday 28 June 2022
19:30 to 20:30

Our gardens can be refuges both for ourselves as well as wildlife. But how do you encourage birds and butterflies to live with you? Is putting up a bird feeder good enough? Do you need to leave nettles in your tiny yard? If you have only got space for one tree, which one should you plant for maximum interest throughout the year while helping wildlife? 

Come along for a talk by RHS gardening speaker Alison Marsden to find out. She will give useful advice on how to make your garden a “good garden” - a residential garden that is environmentally kind as well as attractive to look at. 


Booking required on Eventbrite
