Avon Wildlife Safari Day 30 - Inspiration from others...

Today's Wildlife Safari gives you a different sort of inspiration to create your own little haven for wildlife. By now you may have visited grand National Trust properties, diverse Avon Wildlife Trust nature reserves, the Feed Bristol community food growing project and maybe even a farm or two. The scale of these might be a little overwhelming and difficult to relate to your own backyard or green space.
A visit to Tranby House gardens will give you the opportunity to enjoy the diversity of a private garden and learn about wildlife friendly plants, whilst inspiring you to recreate some ideas back at home.
Tranby House is part of the National Garden Scheme, Gardens Open for Charity which encourages keen gardeners to open their gardens to the public a few times of year to raise money for charity. On Sunday 18 August, between 2-5, visitors can take a look around the gardens at Tranby House and buy plants to help raise money for Avon Wildlife Trust. The gardens are designed and planted to encourage wildlife, with a wide variety of trees, shrubs and cottage plants, ponds and a wildflower meadow.

The gardens are situated just 5 miles south of Bristol, near Whitchurch, click here for a map. Admission is only £3.50 for adults and children go free. There will home made cakes on sale and free car parking at the end of the lane, so if you want to while away a few hours in a beautiful garden, have a bite to eat and learn more about wildlife-friendly gardening then grab this opportunity as tomorrow it will be closed!
