Garden Conservation in Warwickshire

Over the winter period, our gardening teams have been busy carrying out conservation tasks to make sure we keep our gardens in the best possible condition for generations to come. Some jobs you can do at home too. For instance, to create a haven for wildlife, create log piles for over wintering insects; don't use insecticides on plants or flowers; build a pond to encourage birds, hedgehogs and insects and grow nectar rich flowers to encourage butterflies and moths. Other jobs are bigger and take more time.
