Grow a hedge

Lots of hedgerows have disappeared from our farmland. And in towns and cities, fences and walls have become the norm. This is bad news for nature.

Hedges are really valuable for wildlife - they provide a natural 'corridor', connecting your garden with others nearby and linking to the countryside.

Grow a hedge with native trees and shrubs and you'll be giving all kinds of birds, bugs and beasts a home. A good hedge provides food, places to shelter and somewhere to breed all in one.
