Teunisbloemen: ze ruiken heerlijk, ideaal voor nachtvlinders, breken de grond met hun sterke penwortels, bloeien laaaaang, hebben een mooie sierwaarde, puttertjes komen bij mij ‘s winters zaad eten, zaad en bloem(knopp)en ook voor ons eetbaar, zaaien zich op onverwachte plekken uit waardoor de tuin spannend blijft (met selectief wieden kan je het beeld zelf bepalen), doen het ook goed op mijn zandgrond en, oh, ja: ooit al gehoord van het boekje ‘Opblijven voor de teunisbloem’ (de knoppen openen namelijk ‘s avonds)? Need I say more 😉? #gardeningforwildlife #wildlifegardening
People often aren’t sure how to use native grasses in the landscape. We suggest mixing in perennial, native wildflowers and ground covers. They look great with native grasses and make wonderful pollinator beds when mixed. Find our retail space at 2831 East Broadway Boulevard, behind Jen’s Organic Home. We are open Wednesday thru Sunday 9am-5pm. Some evenings we host classes—link to upcoming classes on our website. . . . . #grownative #thedesertisbeautiful #arizona #tucson #arizonanativeplants #sonorandesert #skyislands #wildlifegardening #bajaarizonaplants #organic #desertliving #xeriscape #desertplants #tucsonlocal #localfirstarizona #ecologicalrestoration #nativeplantnursery #organicplantnursery #restoretheflora #organicdesertlandscape #organicgarden #restorethehabitat
We’re in love with native grasses. Last year we ran a sale where you get 6 grasses for $45. We’re doing it again. But you get to pick out whatever 6 species you want, as long as you pick 6 different species. We want you to add diversity to your landscape. Grasses are important plants for the desert ecology. They used to be much more common. We have many for you to choose from. Find our retail space at 2831 East Broadway Boulevard, behind Jen’s Organic Home. We are open Wednesday thru Sunday 9am-5pm.

You work tirelessly, and selflessly. You dedicate your time to helping your small little hive and only ever strengthen the ecosystems you rely on. Have something to drink my tired little friend. You're always welcome in my garden. #bumblebees #saveourbees #nature #wildlifegardening
Join me to ask everything you’ve ever wanted to know about wild hedgehogs!

Huge #hawkmoth caterpillar on its way to pupate under the leaf carpet. I'm glad I don't bother tidying up hedge trimmings if I can get away with it... #laziness #win 😄 . #insect #moth #elephanthawkmoth #wildlifegardening #wildlife #ecology #organicgardening #mygardentoday
Found this Jersey Tiger Moth on the mint flowers at Allens on Monday. It's one of 55 species identified in a study published last month by scientists at @officialzsl, about the displacement of animals due to climate change in the UK in the last 10 years: "the Jersey tiger moth (Euplagia quadripunctaria) previously only seen around Jersey and the south coast of England, is now regularly sighted in London." Apparently it's been gradually moving north with warmer summers, and until fairly recently was only spotted as far north as South London and Kent. . . #jerseytigermoth #euplagiaquadripunctaria #speciesonthemove #sotm_uk #insectsofinstagram #climatechange #globalheating #allens #urbanfarming #urbangrower #sustainablefood #sustainability #localfood #localflowers #hackney #stokenewington #organic #agroecology #wildlifegardening #communityfood #boxscheme  #gardeningforpollinators #gardeningforwildlife #regenerativefarming #carbonfarming #forestgarden
Lovely to find a #redadmiral nectarine on our #whitebuddleia ... #wildlifegardening 🦋☀️🐛
Stunning wildflower spiral inspiration at Helmingham Hall today. This idea would be so easy to copy and keeps the kiddos much more entertained than I’d imagined! Sometimes it’s the simple things that work best isn’t it. #wildlifegardening #wildflowermeadow #gardendesign
Let Fallen Fruit 🍎 Lie Did you know some butterflies 🦋 and insects will feed on overripe fruit 🍐, so you can leave fallen fruit or even make a feeding station. #urbangarden #wildlifegardening #untidygarden #pollinators
Wonderful late summer relaxation @knoll_gardens in Dorset. A fantastic garden with care for the planet at its core. Well worth a visit if you’ve never been and well worth a revisit if you have. #knollgardens #knollgardensfoundation #dorset #wimborne #gardenphotography #gardening #gardendesign #gardenscapes #gardening_feature #agapanthus #plantphotography #summertime #creativegardening #wildlifeconservation #wildlifegardening
Sorry for the long hiatus... to be honest I’ve been feeling a bit apathetic about house plants of late - perhaps they’ve gotten trendy to the point that I just feel I’m one of a zillion carbon copy trendsters. Sorry, everyone ☺️ There was a certain pride in being the puzzlingly uncool geek 15 years ago 😬 I’ve become more & more enthralled with outdoor plants though - forms, texture, wild landscapes, the possibilities of creating dynamic plant communities. But no one really wants to talk about outdoor gardening 🤷🏻‍♀️... but maybe that’s not a bad thing 😊  Anyways - Helenium Spam! ❤️🧡 I can’t believe there are so many flowers on what was a tiny plug plant! I love how the colour turned out (this was labelled simply Autumnale ‘Red Shades’) & the flower shape is so so interesting! 😍 . . #helenium #heleniumautumnale #perennials . #autumngarden #wildlifegarden #beelove #pollinatorgarden #wildlifegardening #wildgarden #prairiegarden #cottagegarden #scottishgardens #flowers #mygardentoday #mygardenthismonth #garden #gardening #britishgardens

A simple black and white silhouette image of a swift. These amazing birds are almost always in the air, only landing at their nests. Did you know swifts can live to be 21 years old and fly over a million kilometres in their lifetime?! By now, most swifts including their young will have returned to their wintering grounds in Africa and we will have to wait until next year to witness their amazing aerial acrobatics once again.  Swifts are declining and we can help by creating more nest sites. Swifts are picky and so specially designed nest boxes are now available to retrofit to existing homes. For new builds, special 'swift bricks' can be built into the fabric of the wall. Find more information on the RSPB website.
Hedging - You Bet A great way to get wildlife friendly in urban gardens is to use a living boundary. Use climbers, ivy or hedging that can bring scent, berries, and colour whilst providing food and shelter for insects and birds. #urbanwildlife #wildlifegardening
I love the colour combinations of the snapdragons we planted this year at Allens, and watching bees climb right inside them. Bought the seeds as a mix from Tamar Organics and so happy with how we'll they've done. The flowers are edible but a bit bitter. I quite like the bitterness though! . . #bees #organic #snapdragon #antirhinnum #flowers #edibleflowers #sustainablecutflowers #tamarorganics #organicseeds #allens #urbanfarming #urbangrower #sustainablefood #sustainability #localfood #localflowers #hackney #stokenewington #organic #agroecology #wildlifegardening #communityfood #boxscheme #eatlocal #harvest #veganlondon #veganhackney #gardeningforpollinators
Coffee in the garden with the bees and butterflies - this space was completely covered in concrete when we moved in last December. All we did was remove the concrete, dig a pond and scatter wildflower seeds and it has completely come back to life! Nature can recover so quickly with the tiniest breathing space. Never get bored of this view! 🍃
‪My absolute FAVE in the moth trap this morning. Garden tiger - it’s declined by 92% in the south-east since 1968. Proud to have them breeding on my allotment and hope to encourage them to breed in my garden. Two adults this morning - a good sign 💚🐛‬
Comfrey A patch of native comfrey is a must for any garden or allotment. We love it. It makes an excellent liquid fertiliser, compost activator, mulch and what's more, the bees love it.  #plantsforpollinators #organicgardening. #wildlifegardening #gardens #allotments

Our rooftop wildlife garden at #alchemillarestaurantnottingham is still pumping out the flowers and feeding all the pollinators.  Planting was inspired by #nigeldunnett’s beautiful Barbican Steppe planting scheme  #alchemillarestaurant #wildlifegarden  #wildlifegardening
