A few years ago I moved into a small one bedroom flat in inner city Manchester where I created a minuscule “wildlife garden” on my tiny , windswept balcony . Surrounded by large numbers of sterile, un-planted balconies of the neighbouring flats , I decided to blog about my green endeavours in the hope that it might inspire others to create similar wildlife habitats on their own balconies. My blog was called “The Wildlife Garden Balcony” and was featured on the BBC’s “Great British Garden Revival” (My balcony makes an appearance 27 mins and 30 secs into the episode)
At the beginning of 2018 I moved into a 2 bedroomed house in Old Trafford which has its own tiny garden. Although I say its a “tiny” garden, compared to my previous balcony , having 29 square meters of land to “play with” seems enormous by comparison ! This is my story about how I am creating a new wildlife garden and hope it inspires others to do the same with their own tiny plots.
