We all know that our wildlife has been hit seriously by loss of habitat and the use of pesticides and weedkillers in the last 50 years. Many gardeners would like to not use these harmful chemicals at all, but it is very difficult sometimes when we see our prize plants being destroyed! Encouraging other wildlife that actually eats a lot of the plant pests is one great way to get round the problem. eg. The Hedgehog eat loads of slugs - but he can also be poisoned by slug pellets containing metaldehyde. There is a new brand of slug pellet on the market which is claimed to be safe for wildlife; 'Growing Success Advanced Slug Killer '.

Encourage hedgehogs to visit - see www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk  for more information.

Meanwhile at 7wells, we include in this section traditional country wild foods that are becoming increasingly popular, propagated from plants on our own land, or rescued from development projects. (It is illegal to dig up wild plants, now that so many have become scarce.) there is an excellent foraging website at; https://www.facebook.com/EdibleLeeds/
