Home gardens can add immensely to the biodiversity of cities and towns.
They provide cover, feeding and commuting routes for wildlife including hedgehogs, badgers, birds and butterflies.

Rowan, bird cherry and dandelion, among others, can serve as food and shelter to a wide range of invertebrates.
