Extended seed choice for the birds
Good news for bird-loving gardeners – Mr Fothergill’s range of seeds endorsed by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), has been extended to 27 varieties and added to the main seed collection.
All varieties are a source of pollen for pollinators or food for garden birds.
Among the most distinctive are the hummingbird hawk-moth’s favourite Valerian, Verbena bonariensis for butterflies, bees and birds and Teasel, with its spiky seed heads that birds love.
Since the range launched in 2014, Mr Fothergill’s has raised £29,360 for the RSPB.
Seed supplied is enough to have created approximately 73.6 hectares of wildlife-friendly gardens, an area equivalent to one-third of the RSPB’s Sandy Nature Reserve – The Lodge.
The RSPB, the country’s largest nature conservation charity, is inspiring everyone to give nature a home and help protect British wildlife.
You can buy single variety packets or three different flowers mixes endorsed by RSPB experts, containing 20g of wildflower seed – one each for birds, bees and pollinators/beneficial insects, price £5.99.
The range will be stocked in all RSPB shops, major garden centres and Mr Fothergill’s stockists at £1.75 or visit www.mr-fothergills.co.uk.
