Who's in your garden?

I've just switched over to watch "The British Garden:  Life and Death on your Lawn" on BBC Four.

Chris Packham and a group of experts from London's Natural History Museum  scrutinise the wildlife in gardens on a surburban street in Welwyn Garden City.  They do this for one year.

Switch on to BBC Four to watch this 90 minute special.   It shows a world full of wildlife with snails, worms, foxes, woodlice and frogs.  It asks questions such as "are lawns any good for wildlife?"  (The wild garden lawn has 3 times as much insects - even letting our lawns grow a few inches helps.) 

So to help wildlife, stop mowing all your grass and let some grow long.
