Use your old plant pots and saucers to make a bird bath, and add a few stones so that insects can access the water without drowning. Ready in minutes!

Use your old bird feeders by repurposing them as a go-to for nesting materials. These ones contain old wool and down feathers – perfect!

This old wheelbarrow sits under some fruit trees and provides almost year-round nectar with snowdrops in the winter, lungwort in the spring and wild geranium (cranesbill) in the summer. Try planting your interesting old cans with herbs to create a garden full of character.

Dead hedges and branches make wonderful borders in your garden. They’re also fantastic habitat for invertebrates, small mammals and amphibians.

Old pallets can be used to create bug hotels and compost bins. Just make sure to check them for the initials SF(sulphuryl fluoride) and MB(methyl bromate), as these are highly toxic pesticides.
