After years of travel and study, The One Show's Mike Dilger has at last bought a house and with it, a (potentially) glorious garden. "Potential" was definitely the word that sprang to mind the very first time Mike and his partner Christina viewed their new "house-and-garden-to-be".
And so begins their year-long journey to create their very own wildlife sanctuary. From otters to badgers, chickens to hedgehogs, an orchard, a pond and compost bins, to the best birdlife imaginable, what began as a straightforward mission soon became the adventure of a lifetime.
