Rewild your outdoor space with inspirational projects and practical advice from Gardeners' World and Springwatch guests The Butterfly Brothers.

It's up to every single one of us to do our bit for wildlife, however small our gardens, and The Butterfly Brothers know just how that can be achieved. - Alan Titchmarsh Join the rewilding movement and fill your outdoor space with nature. If we all made a place for wildlife in our garden, we'd boost 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 outdoor space. Transform a paved-over yard into an oasis, create refuges for 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. Whether you have a large garden or an urban balcony, with the Butterfly Brothers' help, you can rewild your own little corner of the planet.
