Episode 147: bugs in the garden

In this episode

Discutalk with Dr Barbara Tigar and Naser Jaberi Khormooji, University of Central Lancashire. They were ‘busy with bugs’ at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2023 when Ivonne met them.
Do you want to encourage the presence of tiny creatures in your garden? Perhaps it’s wise to know a little about their lifestyle, especially their life cycle. Barbara gives you some nice design tips!
Naser explains how he came to appreciate bugs when preparing for the ‘bug hub’ at the show.

The recording was made in July at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2023. Here, the University of Central Lancashire invited visitors to join in on activities at the bug hub.
