Talking about her new book, ‘Planting with Nature: A Guide to Sustainable Gardening’, Kirsty focuses on planting suitable for a Scottish climate and also includes lots of useful information relevant for gardeners throughout the UK.

Practical information on planting is followed by expert guidance on planting for wildlife with wildflowers, trees and shrubs, as well as building for wildlife with bird boxes, feeders and ponds. For those that want to do their bit to boost nature in their patch and make the world a little greener, this is a practical and beautifully illustrated guide.

By re-imagining how we design and use our gardens, we can all do our bit to support local wildlife, improve our health and help tackle the climate crisis. If we all take positive steps in our gardens, no matter how small, we can all really make a difference in the world.
