  Wildlife Gardening Wednesday 11 June 2003

Even though we are great nature lovers in this country, in the last fifty years we've lost a huge percentage of wildlife habitat and wildflower meadows, woods and heaths.

The gardener Chris Baines, author of How to Make a Wildlife Garden is asking city and suburban gardeners to give nature a helping hand. Fifteen million of us have gardens, and even those in city centres are a potential sanctuary for birds, hedgehogs, frogs and newts.
Jennifer Chevalier went to see Chris's wildlife garden, in the heart of Wolverhampton.
