Gardening for wildlife

Wildlife GardeningGardening for Wildlife

Go wild in your garden! Large or small, ledge or yard, your garden can be a mosaic in a wider network of natural havens! Together, our gardens are a vast living landscape. With an estimated 16 million gardens in the UK, the way they are cared for can make a big difference to the natural world.

Are you a Wildlife Gardening Hero?

Is your garden a haven for wildlife? Do you provide homes for hedgehogs, food for finches and safe areas for slow worms? Then the MWT Wildlife Gardening scheme needs you!

Simply confirm that your garden fits the criteria below and we will send you an exclusive Wildlife Friendly Garden plaque to proudly display. Encourage your neighbours and friends to make room for wildlife in their gardens and they could qualify for a plaque too!

Below is a list of wildlife friendly targets under the headings of Resources, Habitats and Management. Send us photos which confirm you hit at least 5 of these targets (with at least one from each category) to receive your award plaque.


Send your photos and contact details to or visit us at Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust, 42 Broad Street, Welshpool, Powys SY21 7RR

Report your wildlife records and sightings here.
