Re-use, Recycle or Return

Re-use and recycle or return our packaging.   Right from day one of our business beginnings ten years ago we have been very aware of our environmental impact on our precious planet and we are always trying to make sure we reduce our environmental footprint, but sometimes people don't quite see what we do and why. So it is an opportunity to take a mo and write about what we do. If you are interested that is great. If we are boring you, I am sorry - but we don't apologise for our rather basic approach to our packaging strategy! Return Firstly, we had  the polythene bags in which we send our ...

Spring confusion?

Confused? - you should be!   It is February and we have just had the warmest few days in history, this has had enormous effects on nature and will have ramifications for many months to come. Just take a walk around your local open space, flowers are blooming that should not be seen until mid march or April, blossom is abundant and bees are attending to the flowers, birds are squabbling for space and partners. Taking a walk along our lanes in the village yesterday I was stopped by the sound of bees, at first I thought the place must have had a hive the noise was quite incredible, but when I...

Get ready for the cold.

As we head for another cold snap, check your garden bird supplies are in stock and ready to go.   Mid January and the Snowdrops are drooping ready to open their lovely flower heads as the first signs of life come to our gardens. Daffodils are on sale in the shops, so it must be warm down south, our Daffs are still only about half way grown and it is concerning that they may get frosted if the cold weather stays with us for long. The Blackbirds are just about thinking they might start building practice nests and seeing if any females are interested in them and the Hedgehogs are tucked up nice...

Sun is shining but getting cool in the garden now.   It is that time of year to start thinking about the jobs that need to be done before the bad weather sets in. The picture above was taken in our garden on 28th September, a fine and sunny day and a long way from Winter - yet there are signs of Autumn all around us. The leaves are starting to fall, the flowers are dying back and the birds are eating lots of food again! even the picture tells a story, the Bee is slow and lethargic and the Sunflower is showing nearly all seeds are ready to drop - once the Bees have finished the birds can have...

Hedgehog feeding time

It's that time of year to make sure the Hedgehogs are well fed.   August and September are crucial times for Hedgehog survival rates, this is the time of year when the Hedgehogs are gaining weight ready for the Winter and although we don't know the outlook for the Winter yet, it is essential the Hedgehogs are at least 600 grammes before the cold weather arrives.   Keeping a fresh water supply on the ground and feeding scraps (or good Hedgehog food) to the Hogs and their young will give them all they need to get ready for what ever the Winter can throw at them. If you have the room then to ...

Dry weather alert - please put fresh water out for your wildlife.   While this very hot dry weather is with us, please do spare a thought ofr the wildlife around you, there are no puddles and most other drinking oportunities are few and far between, this is a time of year when we humans can make a real difference, don't worry about what sort of container, just find something that is clean and will hold a shallow level of water for the ground based animals and birds to drink from and bathe in.   There is not much more needs to be said really! Please help your wildlife....
