The winter is a time when most of the plants are dormant. That includes little bean’s too. I like sleeping although mummy says she doesn’t get much. That means she has time to think about the plants we might grow next year in the garden!
There are lots of plants that can attract wildlife. We have Buddleia and roses for the butterflies and bees in the spring, lots of bushes with berries for the birds in the autumn like cotoneaster, wall climbers for bugs and birds to hide in and lots and lots of flowering plants all year round. Not only does this mean we have a colourful garden but it also means we are looking after nature.
