The Butterfly Conservation Big Butterfly Count runs from the 20th July 2018, until the 12th August 2018. During this time, Butterfly Conservation – a registered charity who work to protect British butterflies and moths, are asking members of the public to take 15 minutes out of their day, to take note of the butterfly and moth species they see around them.
The Big Butterfly Count is a nationwide survey of butterflies that we can all take part in. This year Butterfly Conservation’s Big Butterfly Count starts on the 15th July 2016, and runs until the 7th August 2016. During this time, if you want to take part, you simply spend 15 minutes, on a sunny day, counting butterflies and day-flying moths. You can choose to take your Big Butterfly Count in your garden, or in the gardens of your school, college or university, in a forest, at a park, or nature reserve, or whilst you’re taking a walk.
I love the autumn, the colourful falling leaves and burnished tones add to the romance and beauty of the garden. Make the most of the autumn planting opportunities available now, order seed catalogues, and create a beautiful garden to enjoy all year round. There’s still lots to do in the garden or at your allotment now!
Mycorrhizal fungi are species of fungi that occur naturally in the soil.
This time of year is so evocative and reflective, with morning mist and an array of autumn colour adding to the beauty of the garden. With shorter days, time is of the essence, there is much to do and enjoy in your garden this month!
It’s the ideal time to plant any beautiful, hardy plants that you’ve had your eye on at your local nursery or garden centre.

If your fences are rather tatty or wobbly, have you considered planting a hedge? Hedges can be a very attractive feature of the garden, they also provide a much needed home for wildlife, and are more able to survive the perils of the winter storms than a fence.
