Everyone can be a wildlife gardener. Whether you are an expert gardener or simply enjoy growing plants on a patio, in a few tubs or on an allotment, there is lots you can do to encourage wildlife to visit.
The UK's 15 million gardens already provide important homes for wildlife, but we can do so much more. Many creatures that are declining in the countryside, such as the common frog, song thrush and hedgehog, can thrive in domestic gardens and other areas if we provide the right conditions for them.
The Big Wildlife Garden was founded by Natural England and has been successfully divested to the Royal Horticultural Society and Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts to carry on the great work of encouraging people to get active in their gardens for wildlife.Top tips and leaflets
