Who doesn’t love shopping? I certainly do, especially when I’m looking for local products which are both luxurious and ethical. I had a blast writing this Valentine’s Day gift guide for Somerset Life magazine.
In this feature for the January 2016 issue of Somerset Life magazine I look at the ways people can use their gardens to help wildlife thrive in the coming year. Have a read and be inspired to plant bee and butterfly friendly plants and flowers, feed and water the birds, be a friend to amphibians and create a haven for hedgehogs! I love wildlife and have enjoyed creating a wildlife friendly space in my own city garden, so it was a pleasure to write this piece. Thanks to Somerset Wildlife Trust for their help.

In this feature for Somerset Life Magazine I visit his exhibition at Bristol’s Christmas Steps Gallery to find out more.

Take a look below.
