This warm, calm weather is perfect for our insects and especially our Butterflies, in Britain there are 59 species of Butterflies that breed here yet they are far less common now than they were 50 years ago one of the main reasons for this is that much of their natural habitat, wildflower meadows, heath land, woodland and peat bogs has been lost to industrial and housing developments and intensive farming. Your garden, however large or small, could be a haven for butterflies, providing food and shelter; even a window box or container garden can help.

Why not have a go at our two new free competitions on the Gardening With Children website, where you can win some great Butterfly products for your garden.

In the SCHOOL ZONE Competition and the FAMILY ZONE Competition simply colour in the butterfly on the blank template that is printed on the entry form for a chance to win a

Hedgehogs are unique creatures that we rarely see, they are a true gardeners friend eating lots of pests including slugs and snails, unfortunately their numbers are in decline. At this time of year we can help by putting out food (not bread or milk) so they gain the weight needed to see them through the winter and by providing them with a safe home to hibernate.

We have launched two new competitions on the Gardening With Children website, giving you the opportunity to win Wildlife products for the Hedgehogs in your garden:
