The Jungle Garden Free read ¸ 2 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER The Garden Jungle is a wonderful introduction to the hundreds of small creatures with whom we live cheek by jowl and of the myriad ways that we can encourage them to thrive The Garden Jungle is about the wildlife that lives right under our noses in our gardens and parks between the gaps in the pavement and in the soil beneath our feet Wherever you are right now the chances are that there are worms woodlice centipedes flies silverfish wasps beetles mice shrews and much much uietly living. Goulson s books are all great but also all of a piece such that you could pick just one to read and it might as well be A Sting in the Tale and don t necessarily need to follow it with the rest His focus in all his books is on insect life what it says about the state of the environment in general and what we can do to protect and encourage wildlife in the places where we live Here he exposes the damage done by gardening and farming as usual and suggests what and how regular people can grow in their backyards and allotmentsThe most valuable chapter is on pesticides it s truly alarming how widespread they are and how difficult to avoid He describes organic food growing your own in the language of Pascal s wager along the lines of you might as well avoid pesticides even if we one day find out that they weren t so bad after all you would have lived a pretty healthy and environmentally low impact life pp 89 90There are even recipes Amusingly the mulberry muffin recipe begins Grow mulberry tree It may take ten years or to fruit I had never heard of jam being made in a microwave and though I m not completely convinced about it I will at least look into that techniue some I like this idea what if we had another dig for victory style campaign supported by the government as during WWII A convincing last line If you really want to leave your grandchildren a healthy planet to live on fat chance it s time to get out in the garden and dig

The Jungle Garden Free read ¸ 2 Done by gardeners who buy intensively reared plants in disposable plastic pots sprayed with pesticides and grown in peat cut from the ground Goulson argues that gardens could become places where we can reconnect with nature and rediscover where food comes from With just a few small changes our gardens could become a vast network of tiny nature reserves where humans and wildlife can thrive together in harmony rather than conflictFor anyone who has a garden and cares about our planet this book is essential readi. This is a book that will make you look at your garden differently It doesn t only focus on how it looks but the goings on underneath the soil and the insects and wildlife that visits your little part of the earth daily and as a keen gardener and fan of wildlife I m even eager now to do bit and take time out to notice the little things and leave things a little wild to help do my bitThis is a really relevant book for the times we are living in and no than now with many people staying home due to the lockdown and spending time in their garden than they normally do The only downside for me is that the people who need to read this the most are the ones who won t pick this up as it s not full of glossy photos or uick fixes for a low maintenance garden the kind of people who revel in the throwaway society we find ourselves in who want everything to be easy to look after and to keep all the creepy crawlies out This books shows just how important all the wildlife is to the make up of the garden and doesn t preach at you but explains things brilliantly and shows just how simple it can be to get the balance in the garden just rightThere are nods to using peat free compost the benefits of being outdoors the importance of allotments and growing your own along with many other subjects such as the variety of animals that use our gardens daily that shows that we can all do our bit in a little way to help this planet of ours I really loved seeing a list of favourite plants he uses to attract different forms of wildlife along with instructions on how to make your own wormery which has got me tempted to give it a go I ve learnt so much from this book and found it to be so informative and interesting from a man who is clearly passionate about the subject he writes out Highly recommended
