Mr Fothergill's

Giving nature a home has inspired many people to create wildlife-friendly areas in their gardens.

In association with the RSPB, Mr Fothergill's have created this range of wildlife garden seeds, specially selected to make wildlife welcome, while still providing a colourful backdrop. Featuring a great selection of flowers in single packs, 4-in-1 collections and seed shaker boxes, you'll be transforming your garden into a wildlife haven before you know it.

  • - Attracts pollinating insects and butterflies
  • - Flowers June to August
Creating a wildlife-friendly garden is more than just a corner of the garden left to go wild. Think of it as a nature reserve, and you are the warden.

Try to provide as many habitats as possible, but avoid cramming too much in and focus on what can be done well in the space you have. A lawn, trees and shrubs, flowers and water are key habitats. Look to create smaller micro-habitats within these. For example:
Long grass provides habitat for egg laying and over wintering of caterpillars and leather jackets.
Blackbirds and starlings search for leather jackets (cranefly grubs) in short grass.
Different species of flowering plants provide nectar and other food sources.
A water feature with different depths is great for wildlife. Shallow areas are used by bathing and drinking birds, emerging dragonflies and somewhere for amphibians to lay eggs. Deeper areas help aquatic insects survive cold spells and are good places to watch newts swimming.
