From bare ground to buzzing! RSPB shows how to bring wildlife to your doorstep - RSPB

We are pleased to announce the launch of Nature on Your Doorstep!

Nature on Your Doorstep is designed to help you turn your garden, balcony, or windowsill into a haven for you and your local wildlife – whether you’re a gardening newbie or a green-fingered aficionado.

It has a series of how-to gardening guides, easy step-by-step videos, seasonal gardening advice, and an online community dedicated to bringing people together to ask questions, seek advice, and share their successes (and learning experiences!).

Already available are four of the ten ‘Wildlife Action’ articles and how-to videos from Adrian Thomas, our wildlife gardening expert. The first two articles, for example, are titled ‘The best plants for wildlife’ and ‘Just add water’, and will talk people through how to find their green fingers (“Even great gardeners have plant failures!”) and the importance of water for wildlife ("It’s the magical ingredient that brings your outside space to life”).

Visitors to the page can also sign up to receive a monthly newsletter full of useful tips and tricks.

Over the next three years the project will continue to grow into a go-to place for gardening for wildlife. The project will host everything from customisable content to seasonal advice across the four countries, as well as conduct research into what drives or prevents people from welcoming wildlife to their outside spaces and investigate how to empower local communities to make shared spaces a home for wildlife.
