Plants for the Wildlife Garden.
We are looking for plants that will attract insects, moths and butterflies into our garden. If you have any to spare we would be pleased to have them. Please leave any plants near the compost heaps at the back of the garden and if possible tell us what they are. Thank you.

We are also short of bog and water plants for our new pond. These could be left in the wet areas near the pond.

We are working in the garden several times a week, weather permitting and can plant things when we arrive.

Thank you.

Gardeners wanted.

If you would like to help us in the garden we would be pleased to have your help. Any amount of time would be appreciated. If you are not a gardener but would like to learn we can offer help and advice and practical experience. Get in touch through the ‘Contact us’ on this web site.
