The Jungle Garden

Edes flies silverfish wasps beetles mice shrews and much much uietly living within just a few paces of youDave Goulson gives us an insight into the fascinating and sometimes weird lives of these creatures taking us burrowing into the compost h. I really enjoyed this book it taught me a lot and has me inspired and excited about my family gardenThis ecological education on a small scale is crucial to us reconnecting with nature on our doorstep rather than needing to travel to a tropical jungle and the discussion of growing your own vegetables is incredible Would recommendThe loss of one star is a harsh criticism mainly the the fact that I wanted photos of the bees described some of the plants discussed I guess a later book could give us some in depth advice on how to garden well too

Eap digging under the lawn and diving into the garden pond He explains how our lives and ultimately the fate of humankind are inextricably intertwined with that of earwigs bees lacewings and hoverflies unappreciated heroes of the natural world. This is a book that will make you look at your garden differently It doesn t only focus on how it looks but the goings on underneath the soil and the insects and wildlife that visits your little part of the earth daily and as a keen gardener and fan of wildlife I m even eager now to do bit and take time out to notice the little things and leave things a little wild to help do my bitThis is a really relevant book for the times we are living in and no than now with many people staying home due to the lockdown and spending time in their garden than they normally do The only downside for me is that the people who need to read this the most are the ones who won t pick this up as it s not full of glossy photos or uick fixes for a low maintenance garden the kind of people who revel in the throwaway society we find ourselves in who want everything to be easy to look after and to keep all the creepy crawlies out This books shows just how important all the wildlife is to the make up of the garden and doesn t preach at you but explains things brilliantly and shows just how simple it can be to get the balance in the garden just rightThere are nods to using peat free compost the benefits of being outdoors the importance of allotments and growing your own along with many other subjects such as the variety of animals that use our gardens daily that shows that we can all do our bit in a little way to help this planet of ours I really loved seeing a list of favourite plants he uses to attract different forms of wildlife along with instructions on how to make your own wormery which has got me tempted to give it a go I ve learnt so much from this book and found it to be so informative and interesting from a man who is clearly passionate about the subject he writes out Highly recommended

    If you are fortunate to have a garden but don’t really pay it much attention then you might not be aware of the insects and other wildlife that inhabit it at the moment It is a jungle out there but one that you need to get down on your hands and knees to see properly Everything from the microbes worms and ant

    I bought this book for its title Gardening to save the planet and the blurb promised a discussion of the kind of re wilding I had learned about from Isabella Tree‘s Wilding as applied to a smaller size garden I‘d already stopped mowing and weeding and this seemed to furnish the scientific justification for it The author is a professor of biologyAnd indeed I learned a number of interesting and entertaining things about my garden its e

    The Garden Jungle by Dave Goulson was just what I was looking for in a garden read as we start our garden this year in earnest It was full of interesting knowledge about apples earwigs worms bees bug hotels moths auatic insects and I honestly never knew how beneficial earwigs are but have loved worms and ladybirds for most of my life I loved reading about rewilding projects taking farm land or even areas of lawn and l
