Hedgehog boxes

Encourage hedgehogs to take up residence in your garden with a specially designed house that is perfect for winter hibernation or summer safe keeping. The houses are built to ward off any unwanted intruders, providing the best possible comfort for the hedgehogs.

Bat boxes

Many bats in the UK  have suffered a tremendous population decline which is due to roosting space losses, feeding habitat losses and various other methods.

You can help them find a suitable roost by putting up a simple bat box. The best place to position a bat box is in a south facing position either in a tree or under the eaves of a building to give shelter from bad weather, but allow a few hours of sunshine each day.

Bee boxes

There are many reasons to keep a bee box or bee log, but helping pollination is the number main priority. As solitary bees buzz from one flower to another, they transfer pollen and play a vital role in enabling plants to set seed and fruit.

You’ll be helping Britain’s bumblebees to survive if you put out a home for them. These bees seek out cavities in which to lay their eggs. They do not work as a communal swarm and each female is independent of each other. This means that they do not swarm to protect the nest and this is why the bees are very safe to encourage in the garden.

Toad houses

Frogs and toads eat a variety of bugs and insects, which is why they are an interesting  and helpful addition to any garden. The habitat provides shelter from predators and cold weather, and would be best place in dry or damp sheltered conditions. Rotting leaves placed under the habitat will encourage frogs or toads to the habitat.
