Wildlife Gardeners’ Question Time, Busy Bees and Refreshing Teas at Snowdonia’s Ty Hyll on Saturday 15th June 2013

Do you want to learn more about bees? Are you looking for ideas to make your garden – whether it’s a tiny patio or a half acre – more wildlife-friendly? Would you like to find out how to make a ‘bug hotel’ for free, that’ll have wild bees and other beneficial insects ‘booking in’ in no time?

Ty Hyll and its woodland gardens

Please come along to Ty Hyll – the Ugly House – on Saturday 15th June, 10am-4pm, when I’ll be joined by eco-gardening horticulturist Jo Thomas for a rolling Wildlife Gardeners’ Question Time to answer queries about making your own garden greener and more planet-friendly. If you’re wondering what plants to grow to encourage beneficial, aphid-eating bugs to your plot, or you’d like to perk up your pollinators, do come along to find out.

There will also be a limited number of copies of my book How to Create an Eco Garden: The Practical Guide to Greener, Planet-friendly Gardening on sale during the day.

Answering the call of nature in Ty Hyll’s wonderful compost toilet, with its living ‘green roof’, is an experience not to be missed.

Children can join in with Ty Hyll’s buzz too: games, a bee quiz, photo challenge and face painting will all keep young insect-spotters busy.

The day’s activities take place between 10am and 4pm, and Ty Hyll’s tearoom (which prides itself on sourcing as much local produce as possible) will be open throughout, serving refreshing drinks, delicious light lunches, irresistible scones and must-have-another-slice honey cake…
