            Join the rewilding movement and fill your outdoor space with nature. Wilding your garden will create a little nature reserve and help increase the number of habitats for our wildlife. The Butterfly Brothers are specialists at creating spaces for wildlife; they showed Gardeners' W...orld and Springwatch how to do it, and now they can help you too. If we all made a place for wildlife in our garden, we'd transform levels of biodiversity and help combat wildlife habitat loss, plummeting pollinator numbers, and carbon emissions. But it's not just a question of letting the weeds take over - there's an art and balance to rewilding a garden well so that you can enjoy it too. The Butterfly Brothers are experts at designing wildlife-friendly gardens, and in Wild Your Garden, they show you how to work with nature, support wildlife, and create a self-maintaining, no-dig balance of planting, whether you have a large garden or an urban balcony. Transform a paved-over yard into a lush oasis, create refuges to welcome endangered species, or turn a high-maintenance lawn into a mini-meadow with the potential to absorb carbon and air pollution. The projects don't require specialist gardening knowledge or lots of land, so whatever size space you have, you can rewild your own little corner of the planet. Be inspired to take action by the Butterfly Brothers and discover the beauty and rewards of sharing your space with nature.

            Thomas Potts of Canterbury: Colonist and conservationist

            In 1858 Canterbury settler Thomas Potts protested against the destruction of totara on the Port Hills near Christchurch. A decade later, as a member of Parliament, he made forest conservation a national issue. Through his writing he raised the then novel idea of protecting native... birds on island reserves, and proposed the creation of national domains or parks. As a pioneering colonist, acclimatist and runholder, however, Potts own actions threatened the very environments he sought to maintain. This makes him a fascinating subject as we confront present-day problems in balancing development and conservation. This book is about, and partly by, Potts, and through him about New Zealand and the course and consequences of colonisation. It describes and interprets his life, from his early years in England through to his 34 years in New Zealand. Excerpts from Potts vivid 1850s diary, written from close to the edge of European settlement, are published here for the first time. Thomas Potts of Canterbury also reproduces 11 long-forgotten essays by him from the 1880s, in which he reflected on the 1850s and what had happened since both to New Zealands natural environment and to Maori and Pakeha. Sixteen pages of contemporary images supplement the text. Thomas Potts of Canterbury will appeal to anyone interested in the early history of Canterbury, in environmental change, and in early efforts in New Zealand towards conservation. It is a story of conflicting goals, magnificently exemplified in the life and writings of a man who strove, 150 years ago, to be both colonist and conservationist.
