We can do lots now as we go into Autumn to prepare the garden onwards for winter and spring wildlife. By doing a few small jobs now, we can help ensure wildlife can survive in the garden over winter and give you an early display of flowers, beautiful for you and very important for pollinators.

So how can we help to tackle flooding at home?
