Hardiness: Hardy (H4)

My garden is about 200ft long and 60 ft wide in the back and the last 30ft is fenced off and we grow vegetables there and that also houses the greenhouse and a couple of small sheds. There is also a small wildlife patch where we allow nettles and other wildflowers and weeds, such as teasels, dandelions, etc. The rest of the garden has trees, shrubs and many different flowers and a lawn area, too. The first part of the garden is mainly where the flowers are and it narrows down to go through an arch. In this part we have a small wildlife pond and an areas where we have arranged old logs and covered with turfs and other material for wildlife to shelter. We garden mainly for wildlife, so there are lots of things that will benefit them and we are not too stringent about weeding in places. We have about 15 feeders for the birds in various areas and are visited by a variety of birds.
