Creating a woodland garden

Whether your garden is large or small, with room for one tree or a whole woodland, learn online about the many wildlife benefits that come from planting trees.

The sense of enclosure and protection offered by a woodland garden creates a safe, relaxing feel and offers multiple benefits for wildlife. It’s an immersive type of garden, offering layers of green foliage to soothe mind and spirit and encourage beneficial insects, like bees and butterflies as well as other wildlife into your space.

This session covers: the ecological value of trees; choosing the appropriate sized tree(s) for the space; establishment guidelines; and what plants thrive in a woodland-style setting.
