About the event

Wildlife friendly gardening does not mean letting every weed, pest and disease run riot, indeed non-native species may threaten wildlife as much as our garden plants. This talk takes a look at where the harm comes from, a “prevention is better than cure” approach and wildlife friendly measures open to home gardeners. With plenty of discussion and audience questions.

Suitable for beginners & more experienced gardeners. Numbers will be restricted to ensure participants obtain maximum benefit from the session.
