GROW WILD GARDENING TO SUSTAIN WIDLIFE IN THE HEPBURNE SHIRE

Author(s): TESCHENDORFF JILL

Gardening

With rolling forested hills, the Hepburn Shire is one of the most beautiful regions in Victoria and the bushland supports a wide range of Australian birds and animals. However, with increasing urbanisation of the region and the threat of climate change, the local flora and fauna are under threat. But by understanding the importance of bushland, residents and property owners can play a major role in protecting wildlife and preserving the natural beauty of the area. This book explains the importance of habitat to the survival of indigenous birds and animals, and offers advice on how to link your property to the wider natural environment. Section 1 offers advice on how to create habitat and provides information on the local wildlife that may visit the garden. Sections 2 and 3 offer advice on how to grow indigenous species successfully and a detailed list of indigenous plants. Section 4 lists useful resources, including nurseries, relevant organisations and websites, and a comprehensive list of references and further reading. With beautiful photos throughout, this is a must for those interested in creating habitat and preserving what is so special about this region.
