Badger Friendly Gardening
The following plants are often found in the badger diet;
- Bramble (Blackberry)
- Wild cherry
- Bird cherry
- Crab apple
- Dog Rose
- Guelder Rose
- Wayfaring tree
Always use native varieties if you can. Badgers also like short grass for catching worms!
If badgers already visit your garden, great!
Don’t feed them any dairy, or anything you wouldn’t feed your dog. It’s best to stick to natural food or untreated peanuts scattered around which will give you a great view as they hoover them up.
