If you can aim to turn 30% of your garden into a wildlife sanctuary, this is called backyard restoration.
You should try to:
- plant native wildflowers
- plant native trees
- collect, save and sow native tree seeds (nuts, acorns, ash keys)
- collect, save and sow native wild flower seed stock in your area
- plant Viper’s Bugloss to attract Bumblebees
- plant Buddleias for attracting butterflies
