Wildlife garden recognised for second year running
Appeared on Space For Nature on September 8th 2003
Gardener Muriel Leask, has scooped the North-east Scotland Biodiversity Shield for the best wildlife garden in the Ellon Community Council Garden Competition for the second successive time.
Mrs Leask's naturalistic garden has evolved from a more traditional ornamental design over the last few years as she has become more and more interested in the wildlife that she finds there. Now she plans to concentrate on using native plants.
Fred Gordon, who judged the contest, said: "This is an excellent example of a small garden set out for wildlife. It has plants for wildlife, shelter and various habitats, ponds and there is ample evidence of visiting creatures - from birds and voles to bees and hoverflies."
