The Garden Jungle
or Gardening to Save the Planetav Dave Goulson129Skickas inom 5-8 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.**SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER** 'Exquisite...should be read by every gardener in the country' Observer The Garden Jungle is a wonderful introduction to the hundreds of small creatures with whom we live cheek-by-jowl and of the myriad ways that we can encourage them to thrive. The Garden Jungle is about the wildlife that lives right under our noses, in our gardens and parks, between the gaps in the pavement, and in the soil beneath our feet. Dave Goulson gives us an insight into the fascinating and sometimes weird lives of these creatures, taking us burrowing into the compost heap, digging under the lawn and diving into the garden pond. He explains how our lives and ultimately the fate of humankind are inextricably intertwined with that of earwigs, bees, lacewings and hoverflies, unappreciated heroes of the natural world. For anyone who has a garden, or cares about our planet, this book is essential reading.
