Right now, we want nothing more than to go outside and be overwhelmed by the awakening of nature. The energy feels featherlight as we surround ourselves with floral splendour. There is a sense of open-mindedness and playful uncertainty in the air; in the extreme antics of wild animals and in the wayward plan of the flower bud.
A few happily buzzing bees or fluttering butterflies make for a cosy garden, and benefit both people and the planet. Did you know that one out of three spoonfuls you eat at diner is directly or indirectly dependent on the work of a honey bee? Enough reason to fill your backyard with some beautiful bee and butterfly-friendly plants!
Vertical gardening sounds like a modern term, but wall climbing vines have been doing the same thing for years. Especially in smaller, urban gardens or on balconies, a green wall can make all the difference. It’s a simple, natural way to add a little bit of wild nature to your outdoor space.
