    Quite a few GC members are very keen on wildlife gardening whether it be creating a wildlife pond, choosing the best spring bulbs for pollinators or growing pollen rich plants from seed. Also involved it siting nest boxes, bug hotels, bat boxes etc and yet we haven't got a specific Wildlife Gardening section!

    Is there any chance we could have one please?

    Also any GC members in support of this can you try twisting @ARMANDII and @Zigs arms!!

    C'mon @BeeHappy and @luciusmaximus we know we need a specific home on GC! :snorky:

        The wildlife section covers all wildlife everywhere not just in the garden and isn't about gardening per se. There is also the wild flowers section but again not covering other aspects. I agree with @Fern4 it would be good to have a section specifically for wildlife gardens and all that they contain :)

          We'm got too many sub sections that just get lost, when was the last time you looked in the haunted section ? :hate-shocked:

          Sticky is fine :)

                Unfortunately, changing a Forum Title or starting a new one will require needs software work that would need the permission of the Web Master, so a new Sticky Thread will have to suffice for the time being.:coffee::snorky:

                  It’s clear to me that we already have a wildlife section.

                  Isn't most of the wildlife found in the Muppet Show?
