Reviews

"If you have to have but a single book on the subject of gardening for wildlife then this is the one [...] an outstanding book." -- Ray Collier * Highland News Group * "A sumptuous production, no household should be without a copy; however small your garden is, you can still make it better for wildlife." -- David Saunders * Natur Cymru * 'This book perfectly illustrates how to make the most of the beauty and abundance of wildlife just outside your back door.' * Garden Answers * "The depth of its knowledge and breadth of its scope ensures that it'll stand as the bible of this crucial field for years to come." * Morning Star * "The original 1985 edition of Chris Baines' How to Make a Wildlife Garden is an old friend, full of advice, promoting a shake-up of perceptions of the over-tidy garden. His latest book is not a revamp, but a true masterpiece written by a man who has immersed himself in the delights of a natural world that is not so hidden, even in the urban environment. Baines draws on his wisdom, sharing gems of knowledge in a captivating and easy-to-follow format... But it is not just an attractive read. The text is packed with scientific data and consequences of our neglect of nature. What is encouraging is the practical ways it suggests we can all make a difference. I would happily read this in the office, quote parts to students or look at the pictures with a child, hoping that the next generation can be more considerate to co-habitants of their environment." * Garden Design Journal *
