See your garden birds up close with window feeders. It is fantastic to see your garden birds enjoying their food every day, now you can watch them even closer. We have three options for you to chose from in the way of window feeders. Observer Window Feeder Up Close Window Feeder I Love Robins Window Feeder All of the above have the same suckers that keep them secured to your window and still allow you to remove the feeder for cleaning. All of the feeders have a roof so your garden bird food can be kept dry and fresh. Even better - they all come with the lifetime guarantee, meaning that ...

It's Hedgehog time again!

As September draws to an end, the Hedgehogs need our help.   Late September and the nights are drawing in, the mornings have a nip in the air and the little Hedgehogs are scurrying around our gardens, looking for food and shelter with an inborn instinct that tells them to fatten up ready for the hibernation of Winter.   The few Hedgehogs in our garden seem to be quite healthy, although we did see a small one last week but I think he was just passing through as it were. We leave our tried and tested Hedgehog food out each night and between one and five Hedgehogs turn up and scoff the lot! I...

Year of the Poppy

David Baxter 24/07/2019 0
This year seems to have been a particularly good one for wild poppies. Take a look at the picture, it is our veg patch. This year we have taken a different approach to growing mainly veg and surrounding it with borders of colourful flowers to attract pollinating insects as we have been doing for many years. This year we have scattered Poppy seeds and Cornflowers over the soil and let them take on the main growing volume of the soil. As well as planting border flowers around the patch. This has meant we have planted some veg later than usual (Beans, Courgettes and Leaks) while at the same ti...

Dawn chorus silenced!

We are really lucky to live in a small village in Shropshire, we can sleep with the windows open and every morning at almost the same time (03.45) the first bird starts off the dawn chorus and soon after there is a beautiful sound from a multitude of early risers and as fast as they have woken us up they calm us back to sleep again.   So, we have had two months of rain in two days here, and that has had quite a dramatic effect on our bird life, firstly on Tuesday morning, I awoke out of habit to listen to the birds at 03.50 - and ........ silence! not a bird to be heard. Only the rain bucket...

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?

Spring confusion?

David Baxter 28/02/2019 0
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...
