For Wild about Gardens Week today we built a mini pond and toad hall. Ponds are a great way of encouraging more insects to your garden and more insects means more bats, as 1 bat can eat over 3000 insects a night. That’s a lot of midges!!
Our toad hall will be somewhere for frogs and toads to shelter over the cold winter months, It has a wonderful turf roof to keep them warm. Our mini pond will be home to all sorts of wildlife. We also planted some night scented and pale coloured plants, to help encourage months and other night insects for Bats to eat.
Our wildlife garden is really starting to take shape.
