Native Wildflowers in Your Garden

Native Wildflowers in Your Garden

So many of our small island’s creatures have a long standing natural bond with our native wildflowers, shrubs and trees.

Jenny’s book ‘Wildflower Gardening’ has really helped me to understand this bond, and persuaded me how essential it is that we do not break it.


Thanks to Adrian Johnson for this photo

Mind you, this relationship can be carried really too far sometimes !
The small tortoiseshell is a lovely butterfly, but it so spoils it’s kids !
Their caterpillars insist on only eating nettle leaves - and they just have to be warmed by the sun.

We thank Lawrence Wright for this photo.

It would be like letting Daisy eat ‘Spag. Bol’. every day.

Jenny has spent a long, long time writing and producing this lovingly photographed and so comprehensive little book - small, but so beautifully formed.

This is long tailed tit’s nest is in Jenny’s garden

As well as showing how easy it is to grow our native flora
- just grow them naturally.
( Quick plug, there is nothing more, er, natural than our Wormcast and Coir Compost ! )

Jenny also clearly tells us which plants are most suitable for which conditions.

Sunny, shady, wet, dry, sandy, loamy, clay, rocky, grassy, banked, very small, very large and everything in between.
Whatever sort of garden, or combination, you have, she will suggest a native plant to suit you.

Incidentally ( and I’m not going to say ‘plug’ again, the pun would be just too excruciating ) our biodegradable plugs, seedling and little ‘Root Runner’ pots would be ideal for potting on then planting out your wild flower plants.

The book really does cover all you need to know in strengthening this so essential natural bond between flora and fauna in your garden.

Joe in particular has taken it to heart the chapter on ‘Wild Place for Wildlife’.


This wonderful photograph
He can enjoy this wild garden corner, and secretly feel very virtuous, while doing absolutely nothing !
and this one, a hover fly landing on a scabious

and this one too !
Were all taken by ‘Aphid Twix’
Jenny demonstrates how to attract all these, and so many other beautiful and helpful creatures, and let Joe get away with not doing a stroke

How ?

Well, it’s all in her thought provoking, meticulously produced, and so practical new book.
