Stroud gardeners learn how to attract wildlife

A Stroud wildlife group is offering its residents the chance to learn how to make their gardens a haven for local wildlife over the weekend.

The SVP (Stroud Valleys Project) is running a wildlife series of gardening workshops that will begin Saturday and run every Saturday until the close of September.

The SVP biodiversity project officer, Ivi Szaboova, is in charge of the project and aims to help people learn how to enjoy their gardens more with some brief and simple advice and tips.

Szaboova said that most people would love to hear birds while in their garden and to see more butterflies, but are unaware of how to make this happen within their gardens.

She continued to say that included in her tips will be advice on how to keep slugs out of the lettuce and other wildlife gardening tips.

Szaboova will be taking attendees over to the SVP director of projects Claire Mahdiyone’s local garden in order to observe how hedgehogs, frogs, insects, and bees can be encouraged to visit a small area which will help encourage birds to come to the area.

This Saturday’s session will focus on hedges, how to plant saplings, the types of trees, and what type of creatures can be expected to stop by for a visit.

Throughout the summer attendees will the chance to try out pond-dipping, hedge-planting, and learn about birds, insects, and bats.  They also will get to make a hedgehog box and create a bog garden.
