If your new year resolution included a pledge to spend more time in the garden and to really start to learn how to nurture your raised beds, when to mulch and when to prune, then you might want to check out the Grapevine Garden over on YouTube.
Danny is a welsh gardener with a big smile (!) and a passion for growing and we were delighted to send him a few products from the Green&Blue range recently to help him make his growing area even more of a haven for wildlife, sitting alongside his nature pond and wild spaces.
Danny is installing a wall mounted Birdball birdhouse in the clip shared above and the BirdBlock nest box, which looks just fab on his plot. Both these birdhouses are perfect for smaller garden birds like bluetits which Danny says have been fewer in numbers recently, we hope that the birdhouses will support more returning to the area.
Later in the spring Danny will also be finding homes for a couple of Green&Blue Bee Bricks and Blocks on the plot, making space for the solitary bees.
We're really looking forward to keeping up with Danny's progress and learning more as we go. Gardening is a brilliant way to connect with nature and with the outdoors, to be more aware of the seasons and, perhaps, to eat delicious food grown by your own fair hands!
