Buy fruit trees and help to save the environment. We often make trying to save our local environment and the rest of the world too complicated.
If we all took small measures, it would be much easier to reduce pollution and increase carbon absorption. Here are a couple of things you can do.
Plant Fruit Trees in Your Garden
One of the best things you can do is to invest in fruit trees. Fruit trees are great for attracting pollinators. When we plant trees and plants in our gardens, we help to increase the local population of bees and other insects that like to feed on the fruit tree nectar.
If you have ever sat under a fruit tree, you will probably have noticed how busy the local insect life is. You will have heard endless buzzing and humming.
Birds also love trees and many like to nest in fruit trees. You are not going to damage your fruit tree by putting up a couple of birds’ nests.
CRJ Fruit Trees can give you the best advice on what fruit trees to buy to increase the population of pollinators in your area.
Start a Compost Heap
Apart from growing fruit trees, you should also consider adding a compost heap to your garden. Surprisingly, compost locks up a lot of carbon.
Up until fairly recently, we did not realise that compost helps to break down harmful particles found in the air. If you don’t already have a compost heap in your garden, you should consider adding one.
Needless to say, you can also use your home-produced compost in your garden. That way, you save a built of money as well.
Grow More Vegetables
Yes, it is nice to have a border packed with flowers. Cottage gardening was once the way we all gardened in the UK. Since popping down to the local garden centre became popular, far fewer of us grow vegetables.
If you have not grown vegetables before, it may seem like a bit of an undertaking. However, vegetables are relatively simple to grow.
Start with easy vegetables such as onions and cabbages. Gradually increase your home-grown vegetable selection by adding varieties you enjoy eating. Tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers are surprisingly easy to grow.
