Roly-poly town

Today we head off to roly-poly town to visit the unsung heroes of the invertebrate world... WOODLICE!!!!

These tiny armadillo-like creatures are nature's recyclers. All winter long they will be working hard in your garden, breaking down and recycling your organic waste.

We also hear about what you can do in your winter garden to help your wildlife neighbours survive and thrive until spring, AND what to do with all those fallen leaves.

Be a winter garden hero!!
