Guess what?!?! Tui's, Morepork's and many more, live in our garden! Including hedgehogs! But, being serious, if you want some tips, then go to the Hamilton gardens. They've got a really interesting garden called the home-style garden (i think), and it was designed by a family of four and it's really cool.
