9780007123179: Gardening for Birds: How to help birds make the most of your garden

These days people are keener than ever to attract birds into their gardens. Collins Gardening for Birds is the first book to explain how to make the most of the garden you have, whether it is a balcony, a courtyard or simply a window ledge.

Featuring six full-page garden plan illustrations by Gill Tomblin, Collins Gardening for Birds covers all different types of garden: window ledge, balcony, terrace or roof terrace, small suburban, large suburban and country garden. Each one is supplemented by checklists that suggest the best nest-boxes, feeders and baths to install, and also the best sorts of plants to cultivate – there is also a section on unusual gardens, such as those near the coast.

Subsequent chapters look in more detail at caring for birds, providing protection from predators, and identification information. Another innovative feature is the inclusion of a bird calendar which explains season-by-season the different birds you are likely to see in each type of garden, and the correct type of food to provide at different times of the year.

From the Back Cover:

People are now keener than ever to attract birds into their gardens. 'Collins Gardening for Birds' is the first book to explain how to make the most of the garden you have.

Featuring six double-page garden plan illustrations by Gill Tomblin, 'Collins Gardening for Birds' covers all different types of garden: balcony, terrace or roof terrace, small suburban, large suburban and country gardens. There is also a section on gardens where the cultivation of bird-friendly plants might be more difficult, such as coastal or north-facing gardens. Each one is supplemented by checklists that suggest the best nestboxes, feeders and baths to install, and also the best type of plants to grow.

Subsequent chapters look in more detail at caring for birds, providing protection from predators, and identification information. There is a plant directory that gives details of grasses, flowering plants and trees which can help feed, and provide shelter and nesting sites for birds. In addition a bird calendar explains season-by-season the different birds you are likely to see in each type of garden, and the correct type of food to provide at different times of the year.

As garden birds decline it is becoming increasingly important not only to entice birds into your garden, but also to ensure they are well-protected. Collins 'Gardening for Birds' should provide all the information that you need and ensure the best possible future for our garden birds.
