RSPB green gardening survey
Appeared on Space For Nature on May 22nd 2005
A survey conducted on behalf of the RSPB has found high levels of interest in wildlife gardening.
Timed to coincide with the Chelsea Flower Show, the survey found that 78% of the 1,700 people interviewed already attracted wildlife to their gardens by putting out bird food, bird baths, planting for wildlife etc. 53% of those questioned wanted to learn more about attracting wildlife to their gardens. There was also a high level of interest in other 'green' gardening issues, for example composting organic waste, using peat-free compost, collecting rainwater and reusing household products in the garden.
