In this week’s wildlife adventures with an iPhone, I couldn't resist filming how much life this buddleia supports when it flowers - there's no wonder it's often referred to as the butterfly bush.
Wildlife gardening isn't for everyone; however, a Buddleia is easy to plant and thrives in the toughest of garden conditions. Watch how popular this one is with the bees.
Even a small garden could host a buddleia or two and they're so easy to grow. This one demands very little attention. It was planted around two years ago and now attracts plenty of bees and butterflies.
Should I continue to feed wild birds in summer? The answer is absolutely, YES, to feed. In fact, we should feed the birds in winter, spring, autumn and, most definitely, summer. Iconic bird expert Bill Oddie is calling for us all to join his ‘summer bird feeding is cool’ revolution.
Many people think that feeding wild birds is primarily a winter activity, but birds need our help all year round and arguably even more so during the summer months too.
