The Garden Jungle : or Gardening to Save the Planet by Dave Goulson
'Exquisite...should be read by every gardener in the country' ObserverThe 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. Dave Goulson gives us an insight into the fascinating and sometimes weird lives of these creatures, taking us burrowing into the compost heap, digging under the lawn and diving into the garden pond. He explains how our lives and ultimately the fate of humankind are inextricably intertwined with that of earwigs, bees, lacewings and hoverflies, unappreciated heroes of the natural world.
For anyone who has a garden, and cares about our planet, this book is essential reading.
