Love NatureSee Our Latest News
The climate emergency in Yorkshire and globally is more prevalent than ever and one way we can all enjoy helping make a change for the better is in our gardens.
OUR LOVE NATURE GARDEN
A great wildlife garden uses colours and shapes of flowers to keep insects and birds coming back for nectar throughout the year. Our brand new Love Nature Garden is set to inspire and educate gardeners of any skill set to plant for local wildlife and take action to positively impact nature restoration in their own outdoor space. Now is the time to actively encourage wildlife into our gardens more than ever before. Here at Tong, we’ve created our own Love Nature Garden and planted with purpose for our pollinators.

“Together, our gardens are a vast living landscape. With an estimated 24 million gardens in the UK, the way they are cared for can make a big difference to the natural world” Yorkshire Wildlife Trust
Our green spaces are a lifeline for wildlife and we were amazed to learn from our friends at the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust that, together, all the gardens in the UK are larger than all of our national Nature Reserves combined. Imagine the impact we could have if we all did one or more new thing in our garden that benefitted local wildlife and helped nature recovery.
Our gardens are as important for wildlife as they are for our wellbeing and enjoyment. They can provide a home and a valuable food source for beneficial insects and birds that will, in turn, reward us by managing unwanted pests and pollinating our plants.
There are lots of wonderful ways that we can attract local wildlife and support nature recovery in our gardens.
With roots planted right here in Yorkshire, we believe in giving back to the place we call home. Each year, we will aim to raise £10,000 for our nominated charity as well as donate to local initiatives in the ways they need it most with our community ‘Kindness Pot’.
Now more than ever, we recognise that we must do more to support climate action. We’re committed to reducing our impact on the planet with many sustainable practices already implemented and plans in place for a more sustainable future.
