After the best part of forty years spent either living under his parents' roof, in the tropical rainforests of three continents, a vast array of student digs or most recently a one-bedroom flat, The One Show's Mike Dilger has at last bought a house - and with it, a (potentially) glorious garden...

`Potential' was definitely the word that sprang to mind the very first time Mike and his partner Christina viewed their new `house-and-garden-to-be' in a small rural village some eight miles south of Bristol.

And so begins their year-long journey to create their very own wildlife sanctuary. From otters to badgers, chickens to hedgehogs, an orchard, a pond and compost bins, to the best birdlife imaginable, what began as a straightforward mission soon became the adventure of a lifetime.

Illustrated throughout with beautiful black-and-white line drawings by Christina Holvey, Mike Dilger's partner-in-crime, this light-hearted nature tale with a twist will appeal to wildlife enthusiasts and keen gardeners alike.
