Create a hedge of native shrubs

A hedge made from native woody species creates a valuable habitat for many plant and animal species everywhere. The native shrubs include, for example, cornelian cherry, Pfaffenhütchen, cinnamon rose, hawthorn, elderberry, serviceberry, bush vetch and red currant. In contrast, exotic varieties such as cherry laurel, bamboo, thuja or forsythia do not feed animal species.

A video series created as part of the "gARTENreich - Science and practice for more diversity in gardens" project shows what contribution the 17 million gardens in Germany can make to the preservation of biodiversity, explains why native wild plants are important in the garden and with which structures you can help animals in the garden. The gARTENreich project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Research. More information at: www.gartenreich-projekt.de/biodiversitaet-und-gaerten/
