A habitat garden can begin to recreate some of the natural spaces that are being squeezed out by development. In this class, you'll learn how to attract wildlife into your garden and provide for their needs; this can be as simple as changing your garden maintenance (less is more!), or replanning your space to maximise the number of local native plants and animals it can sustain. We will look at specific plants in the nursery which are useful and discuss the features of the plants - leaves, flowers and thorns that all attract different types of birds and insects.
