The snowdrops here at the farm are in full bloom, the crocus are just peeping out, and Heidi is jumping for joy! All of these things give us a sense of Spring around the corner, and it’s time to get your garden ready for Spring visitors!
Busy Birds in Spring
Springtime for the birds is a busy old time – eating enough seeds to keep warm and provide enough energy to find a suitable home and a mate ready for the breeding season. Cold nights and lack of natural food through early Spring means bird feeding is essential, keep your feeders full with our homegrown seed mixes, hearts, peanuts and suet products to keep the birds well nourished through these busy months
Wildlife in Spring
The garden will soon awaken with wildlife – get stocked up on our hedgehog food ready for when they emerge from hibernation. We stock the nutritious and delicious I ♥ Hedgehog Food and Brambles, both perfect for your prickly visitors to wake up to
Spring time to plant Wildflowers
March is the perfect time to start planting wildflowers in your garden, providing valuable habitat and pollen for the bees and insects in your garden. We have three colourful mixes to choose from – get an instant blast of colour from our Annual Summer Bee, or choose from our largely perennial Wild Bird Wildflower and Butterfly & Bee Mix.
Providing New Homes
Birds and wildlife will soon be looking for Spring homes, join in with the National Next Box Week in February and put up one of our range of nest boxes for your garden birds. We also have some delightful hedgehog houses for your hedgehogs to raise their family! These additions, alongside your pollen rich flowers and full bird feeders will have your garden full of visitors this Spring
