Inspiring garden wildlife to flourish

Knoll Gardens in Wimborne is hoping to inspire gardeners to create ‘mini reserves’ that offer refuge and food for wildlife.
At an open day this month, visitors will be able to see how a stunning effect has been achieved with grasses and perennials, shrubs and trees, with little maintenance and minimum use of resources.
They can meet the Knoll Gardens Foundation’s ‘wildlife and garden experts’, explore the gardens and learn more about the stunning grasses, colourful perennials and wide variety of insects, birds, amphibians and mammals that call the gardens home.
The open day is on Friday, September 16, from 10am until 5pm and admission is £6.95 (concessions apply), with proceeds going to the charity.
The Knoll Gardens Foundation is seeking new trustees and volunteers to help promote its ethos and build on the work it carries out.
So if you are passionate about sustainability, gardening and wildlife, and have skills to share, the open day offers the chance to learn more about the charity and how to get involved.
