Subject: RE: BS: Mudcat Gardeners report - 2011
The exception I've argued for, above, is vegetables and other consumables - to cut down on food miles, etc. But surely using remaining gardening space to create, as closely as possible, native habitat (so much of which has been lost to modern farming, etc.) has to be good for the diversity of native fauna and flora.

I accept that creating an attractive native garden can be quite a challenge (in Australia and England, e.g.), but it has to be a good challenge for gardeners to take-up. Thus, I was pleased a couple of years ago when Monty Don started a native-garden trend - but, sadly, it seems to have waned.
