Ben & Ellie have a real passion for wildlife gardening, which comes across in every episode of this podcast. Great advice and tips, based on researched data, aimed at anyone with an interest in helping Britain’s garden wildlife to flourish.
What a fantastic podcast! I will look forward to the next episode! We used to have ivy growing all over our fence which was spilling over from our neighbor’s to ours and it was beautiful but we had to take it down because it started damaging the fence. I still find it coming up where it used to be so every time I see it, I transfer it to the school garden where I work. A bit like guerrilla ivy-ing. Keep up with your great job! Xxx
So accessible and entertaining
I’m feeling bad for trimming my Ivy from the shed now but I’m loving learning a little each episode. A wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm! Thanks guys!
