Welcome to The Habitat Garden Blog.
My name is Jilly and I am The Habitat Gardener - amateur naturalist, gardener and blogger. I came to this garden in summer 2016. It was like a long awaited homecoming. It is an old country garden, derelict in places. A dreamlike place where the nettles are long and the past almost tangible. My challenge is to create an aesthetically pleasing, manageable garden while not diminishing (and hopefully increasing) the habitat it offers to wildlife. This blog follows that journey.
Come along for the ride! My posts contain leanings and learnings on habitat gardening, tips, video guides, book reviews and 'Species Spotlights', with the occasional poem thrown in.
