Give wildlife a drink
Put out a tray of water in warm weather and you'll find a host of wild creatures appreciate it to the full, from birds wanting a drink and a bath, to bats and hedgehogs looking for a watering hole at dusk. Even bees need to drink, so make sure it's kept topped up at all times.
Plant of the Week: Ornamental grasses
Graceful, elegant and imposing in the garden, grasses are a must-have in the garden. They're the perfect setting for other perennials, then from late summer send up spectacular plumes which add a magical touch to the winter garden when rimed with frost.
They're very low-maintenance, too. Evergreen grasses just need a comb through with your fingers in spring to remove dead thatch: these include Stipa gigantea with graceful oat-like flowerheads and Anemanthele lessoniana which turns orange, yellow and red in autumn. At the same time, prune deciduous types like tall, airy Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' and Deschampsia cespitosa to the ground to give new shoots room to grow.
