  • by JW

“Most of our garden is quite a wild garden.”


One of the key ideas of the new Sid Valley Biodiversity Group is to focus on what we do in our private gardens:

How can the Sid Valley enhance its biodiversity over the next decade? – Vision Group for Sidmouth


And someone who is clearly interested in both gardening and biodiversity has just been on BBC Two’s Gardeners’ World.. Spot the wild look and the pond – as well as the helpful hint:

Sidford resident’s garden video chosen by Gardeners’ World

A green-fingered Sidford resident recorded a video of her garden, which has been aired by a TV show, after being chosen from a pot of 6,500 clips submitted by viewers.

Lucy Wheeler was watching Gardeners’ World when Monty invited viewers to send in a two-minute video of their gardens and a bit about it, to show others helpful tips.

“I wanted to share this with the community of Sidmouth as we live in Sidford and I wanted to thank Luke, Jessy and Skipper – the star of the show – for their help to do something different and have a laugh in this difficult time for all of us.”
