Kate’s Wild Border

New Alresford, Hampshire

Small Garden

This small garden Wild Space includes a border for wildlife. It’s about two metres long and half a metre to a metre wide and sits to one side of a small area of lawn. The border was sewn with native wildflower seed mix to help attract butterflies and moths.

The space has been left to evolve in a natural way and, because it is not back over winter, provides shelter for caterpillars and pupae. It includes big Teasels which are left because their seed heads not only attract Goldfinches, but there’s also a moth whose caterpillars shelter in the seed heads over the winter.
