Have you heard of it? I first heard the term in another blog about our newest generation of gardeners. It is basically a trend where your growing space is returned to a more natural habitat that can provide food, water and shelter for all the living things in your garden; birds, small woodland creatures and of course pollinators.
From a design perspective it's all about putting Mother Nature in the driver's seat and, here is the hard part, letting go! Rewilding is about NOT being in control. What that means is less focus on hardscaping and more about introducing spaces that would be naturally occurring, like planting a native hedge instead of a traditional wood or metal fence. Or creating a meadow simply for pollinators, that requires less attention from human touch and can be over-planted to help control weeds.
Until recently, rewilding was a term reserved for large scale conservation projects. Restoring ecosystems to a point of balance , where it can take care of itself, and being able to reconnect with a natural world.
Over time I intend to introduce new garden spaces to our Cut Your Own Flower Garden, and this is high on the list for 2022. So Day 21 in our 24 Days of Giveaways is an escape to Stems Flower Farm.

This prize is best suited for August or September of 2022.

Connecting with Nature is so important. So often when I am busy working away in my garden my daughter will just sit and observe and she sees so much more than I do. The worms, snails, butterflies how only some bugs land on some plants. You can read a book but nothing beats just sitting in nature and taking it all in

Spending time foraging is a great way to connect with nature! I have found morels, leeks, fiddleheads, and lots of other yummy treats 😋

I did try planting wild flowers and sunflowers in our ditch by a busy road, by just throwing seeds in the overgrowth in the hopes that people would stop and pick a flower but the results were not as enthusiastic as I was.

I think what you mention about ‘letting go’ is an important point. Although I find my garden a peaceful place, when I started gardening, I learned from experience that squirrels could be a real nuisance when it came to planting (and blooming) bulbs. Recently, I’ve returned to spending time observing them without any stress or worry, and letting them do their thing. I still do take precautionary measures to protect my bulbs, but I don’t get upset when I discover a small hole nearby from determined squirrels.
