Encouraging Wildlife


SKU: N/A Category:


Whilst we are not currently a registered organic holding all our management methods avoid chemical inputs, and minimise external inputs wherever possible. We largely create the fertility of the garden internally, save our own seeds and manage and control ‘pests’ and diseases through building habitat.

This relies on high populations of birds and invertebrates. For example we believe you have a problem if you have no aphids- what would the bluetits eat? The trick is to keep these things in balance. So trees, flowers and perennials shrubs are key to making homes for wildlife. Understand the value of plants for other species helps (e.g. teasels for goldfinches, nettle for butterflies and moths).

We also stock a small range of constructed housing:
Robin & Tit boxes and Bumble Bee Housing
