February’s Wildlife Gardening To-Do List: A Seedball Guide

Hey Seedballers! As we ease into February, it’s time to kickstart another exciting season of wildlife gardening. Here’s your go-to guide for the month, packed with Seedball’s top wildlife gardening jobs that will make your garden a buzzing haven for nature. Let’s dive in!

  1. Plan Your Wildflower Haven: It’s time to dream big! Sketch out your wildflower haven and decide which native blooms you want to invite into your garden. Consider the delightful varieties of wildflowers in our Seedball collections – from vibrant poppies to the delicate hues of cornflowers.

  2. Seedball Scattering: Grab your Seedballs and get ready to scatter some magic! February is an excellent time to sow your wildflower seeds. Whether you’re aiming for a window box, balcony garden, or a sprawling backyard, the seed balls make it a breeze. Scatter them where you want bursts of colour and watch as nature does its thing.

  3. Wildlife-Friendly Hedge Trimming: If you have hedges in your garden, now is the time to give them a gentle trim. This ensures they stay neat and tidy for the upcoming nesting season while still providing shelter for birds and insects.

  4. Build a Bug Hotel: Calling all DIY enthusiasts! February is the ideal month to create a cozy retreat for beneficial insects. Gather materials like bamboo, wood, and old bricks to build a bug hotel. Place it in a sunny spot, and soon you’ll have a bustling community of pollinators and pest controllers.

  5. Check Nest Boxes: Show some love to our feathered friends by inspecting and cleaning out your bird boxes. Remove any old nesting material and give them a thorough clean, ensuring a comfy space for birds scouting for nesting sites.

  6. Create Compost Piles: Make the most of your kitchen and garden waste by starting or maintaining a compost pile. Not only is it an eco-friendly way to dispose of organic matter, but it also attracts compost-loving insects that play a vital role in your garden’s ecosystem.

  7. Plant Bare-Root Trees and Shrubs: February is the perfect time to plant bare-root trees and shrubs. Choose native species to support local wildlife, providing food and habitat for birds, insects, and other creatures.

  8. Watering Holes for Wildlife: Create small water features or ensure your existing ones are clean and accessible. These watering holes are essential for birds, amphibians, and insects, especially as the weather starts to warm up.

Remember, wildlife gardening is an ongoing adventure, and every small effort contributes to the thriving biodiversity in your outdoor space. So, grab those Seedballs, don your gardening gloves, and let’s make February a month to remember in our wildlife gardens! Happy gardening! Ana 🌼🐝
