Our top tips for sustainable gardening:

  • Leave a gap in your fence for hedgehogs or other wildlife to get through – if your garden is enclosed you may be stopping them from reaching food.
  • Start a compost pile or bin to recycle kitchen scraps and garden waste.
  • Water your plants early, or late in the evening. Consider collecting rainwater in barrels and using it to water your garden.
  • Apply organic mulch, such as wood chips or straw, around your plants to retain soil moisture and stop weeds from growing.
  • Group together plants that benefit each other. For example, planting marigolds around your vegetable garden can deter pests naturally.
  • Create a pollinator-friendly garden by including flowers that attract bees and butterflies. These pollinators are essential for growing fruits and vegetables. Wildflowers are a cheap and easy source to attract our pollinating friends!
  • Save seeds from your mature plants to reuse in the following season.
  • Opt for organic fertilisers like compost or seaweed extracts to nourish your plants naturally and avoid synthetic chemicals that can harm the environment.
