Many of us now understand the importance of feeding the birds and wildlife all year around.

In the spring, birds begin nesting in March and will have their fledglings from April until September, our range of premium peanuts are rich in fibre, oils and protein and our seed is a selected blend of quality seeds and grains which will attract the widest variety of garden visiting birds

Feeding in the summer is essential as it supplements the adult bird’s diet whilst they are providing natural food to their fledglings. Birds also begin moulting in summer and a high protein and fibre diet ensures their plumage is in great condition. Don’t forget water is essential for bird survival during the hot summer months.

Autumn is the time of migration, supplying high energy foods such as suet pellets or suet balls ensures that the resident birds are prepared for migration and arriving birds are able to top up their energy and fat reserves ahead of a cold winter.

In winter birds require high fat content foods to survive the cold nights and also need to have a good source of fresh water so it is essential to keep bird baths free of frost.

We stock an array of feeds, feeders, nesting boxes, bird tables, treats, dining stations, bird baths and accessories.





Many species of insects and wildlife are sadly declining in numbers due to a number of factors including the removal of hedgerows and obsession with keeping the garden tidy and clean.

We can help to stop this decline by making our gardens more wildlife friendly by planting more flowers and introducing nesting sites into the garden.

Butterflies pollinate many flowers and lacewings do a fabulous job of eating up pesky aphids such as greenfly. Providing a butterfly home will give a year round home to butterflies and moths to hibernate and breed in.

The bee is both beneficial to man and plants as they are important pollinators of flowers and crops. Our Bee log provides warm, dry cavities which bees love to nest in, very similar to the natural cavities made in wood by beetles and woodworms.

The ladybird is a gardeners favourite as they eat up and help control large numbers of pests such as greenfly, mealy bugs and small caterpillars. Make you garden ladybird friendly by giving aphids a chance to settle, as ladybirds will only stay where food is plentiful. Ladybird adults will over winter in natural vegetation or hollow stems, our Ladybird Lodge has drilled holes to give a warm, dry chamber in which to hibernate.

Squirrels ideally need their own source of food from their own specific feeder, this will deter them from stealing bird food and attacking bird feeders. The inclusion of squirrel food in your garden will also supplement a squirrel diet in times when natural food is scarce. It will also have the advantage of helping the already depleted species of red squirrels to prosper.
