Fife is a wonderfully diverse county when it comes to wildlife and is actually something of a frontier in terms of newly arriving species that are extending their territories within the UK northwards. Recorded sightings of several species of butterfly have increased in recent years, and a few species are arriving here for the first time such as the beautiful wall brown and holly blue, most likely as a result of climate change.
I'll be encouraging lots of my customers to allow me to plant the specific food and nectar plants required by these species to encourage them to become permanent and long term residents within our county. In addition I can create wildlife-friendly spaces for many other species, from birds to bats, bees to frogs and toads, hedgehogs to ladybirds.
Unfortunately the overall statistics for wildlife do not paint a happy picture. A great many of the UK's species are in long-term decline, but we can help. Our gardens are potential homes and food sources for moths, bees, butterflies, birds, hedgehogs and so many more wonderful animals. In my garden work I'll be focussing on the species mentioned here, creating beautiful garden spaces that work as a refuge for both people and animals alike. If like me, you love to see and hear wildlife in your own garden do get in touch to see what small or large things we can implement in your garden space to create a home for wildlife or follow the links below to find out what I can offer for each species.
