If your garden it teaming with wildlife habitats and you haven’t yet entered this year’s Dorset Wildlife Trust Wildlife Friendly Gardening Awards, there is still time. The deadline for entries is on Monday 19 May and judging will take place throughout June. Entry forms and guidance notes can be picked up for free from our garden centres, online www.dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk/wildlifegardening, or by contacting Joy Wallis on 01305 264620, email jwallis@dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk.


This year’s awards ceremony will be held at Castle Gardens on Wednesday 16 July and we’re lucky enough to have Dr Lionel Smith from Reading University coming along to talk about grass-free lawns and hand out those all important prizes for the best gardens.
