Gardening experts from The Gardens Group and wildlife champions from Dorset Wildlife Trust are joining forces to run a workshop about the role that gardening plays in protecting and encouraging the country's wildlife. The one-day workshop will cost £55 per person and will be held on Saturday 11 May from 10am - 4pm at The Kingcombe Centre near Dorchester, Dorset.

Mike Burks, co-founder and managing director of The Gardens Group, explains: "We are really looking forward to working with Dorset Wildlife Trust at Dorset's leading environmental education centre. The day will be full of practical tips on how to create a wildlife haven whilst also being a wonderful garden throughout the year. What's more, we'll be happy to answer questions and offer advice on natural pest control methods."

Tony Bates, chairman of Dorset Wildlife Trust, adds: "It's a real pleasure to combine our knowledge and passion for the natural world with the expertise and enthusiasm for horticulture from The Gardens Group. This workshop is a great addition to our course calendar, and we would encourage gardeners of all levels to come and find out how to make their garden more wildlife-friendly."
