Gardening Australia

The ABC's Gardening Australia programme on Fridays at 7.30 pm (at least in SA) now has lots of information about attracting wildlife in general & birds in particular to your garden. I've just finished watching tonight's episode in which Birds Australia's Sean Dooley & new presenter Ive Forgottenhernamesoillhavetowatchagainnextweek discussed attracting small birds to your garden. Sean made the point about how our natural landscapes have become extremely fragmented which makes it difficult for small birds to disperse after breeding. Gardeners can help this process by recreating the bushland which once grew so that larger areas of bushland are connected thus enabling small bird dispersal & survivability. This can all be watched on ABC iView if you missed it.

Well, whadoyaknow, just after I posted the above post I was browsing the News tab above & came across the name of the new Gardening Australia presenter. It's Em Bowman. And a very interesting article she has written. Definitely worth a look.
