In third position is the bird bath with 51,000 global average monthly searches on Amazon. Stefan Gheorghe from Diys.com discusses the importance of looking after our garden this autumn, in particular bird baths: ‘at this time of year, sources of water become scarce for birds as many freeze over. Bird baths provide a solution to this issue as birds are able to bathe in clean water and keep their feathers in good condition which is vital for them to keep warm.’

Stefan Gheorghe from Diys.com provides 3 simple tips to prepare your garden for autumn/winter:
- Garden layout– To avoid your garden looking bare as plants die, it is important to add structure. Wall gardens, hedges, and raised flower beds ensure that your garden is prepared for every time of year.
- Create light– fairy lights and lanterns are a great way of providing light and can be hung on trees, draped over bushes, and can be hung over decking and other garden structures.
- Adding scent– planting specific plants, such as witch hazel, is perfect for adding a wintery scent to your garden. Winter honeysuckle is also good for adding a lemony scent to your outdoor space.
