UK gardens cover around 433,000 hectares of land, which is nearly three times the size of Greater London and more than two and a half times the area of RSPB nature reserves.
The RSPB says this means there is huge potential for everyone to help nature at home.
David Wilson Homes’ Collaboration with the RSPB
New home builder David Wilson Homes has collaborated with the UK’s largest nature conservation charity, the RSPB, to create a list of seven bird and pollinator-friendly plants that can help attract pollinating insects and other wildlife to gardens, backyards, or balconies.

The list includes marjoram, verbena bonariensis, hardy geraniums, catmint, lavender, helenium, and foxglove digitalis.
