The show also has set strict standards this year to eliminate the use of peat, as the peatlands are habitats for birds and rare plants.
* Pile leaves up in a quiet corner and a hedgehog may choose it as a home for the winter.
* Save water by growing plants that need less water, such as herbs, lavenders and buddleias that attract more wildlife to your garden too.
* Use strips of yoghurt pot as plant labels.
* Use mulches around plants to keep the water in.
* Plastic bottles cut in half make ideal mini greenhouses for seedlings.
* Pile some logs up in a shady corner and minibeasts will make their home there.
* Plant pot saucers and dustbin lids make good birdbaths.
* Old rope can be used as a handrail or looped between pergola posts to train a climber along.
* Cut the tops off old wellies and bury them to contain the roots of invasive plants such as mint.
* Spare copper piping could be used to make a windchime.
* Egg boxes make good seed trays.
* Gather leaves in autumn, put them in a black plastic bag and put holes in it to create mulch.
* Old bricks and paving slabs can be used to make the frame of a compost heap.
* Make bird shapes from paper and put them on windows so that the birds don't crash into them.
* Cut off old sunflower heads and hang them up. Birds eat the seeds and bugs hibernate in them.
* Use water from your water butt for indoor plants in winter. Just let the water warm up inside first.
* Use the fingers from old gardening gloves to mask sharp tools.
* Use leftover wood from DIY projects to make a nestbox for the birds, a batbox or a birdtable.
*Small plant pots make excellent containers for birdcake - which is made by mixing seeds with fat.
