Our partnership with the
British Trust for Ornithology (BTO)

We’re delighted to partner with BTO to bring together our collective expertise on gardening, plants and garden wildlife, so that you can get the most out of your garden. BTO, which is a leading wildlife charity and research organisation, also supports us with our growing range of information on birds, their behaviour and how to attract them to your garden. Grow with us and make your garden rich in wildlife.

What is the BTO?

The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) is a UK charity that is inspired by birds and informed by science. It works to advance our understanding of how and why bird populations change, so that effective conservation action can be taken to secure their future in a changing world.
