Read our gardening actions for November
Most garden wildlife hibernates over the winter months, for example hedgehogs and bumblebees, and November is the time when they are preparing for this. Some species, for example birds and squirrels, don’t hibernate but struggle to survive, using up fat reserves staying warm and searching for food. Here we explore ways to make your garden ready for its winter inhabitants and help them through this tough time of year.
