The Woodland Trust's FSC-certified garden wildlife habitats make the stormy days and cold nights a bit easier for your garden friends. Handmade from FSC timber, the Bempton hanging bird table is a popular bird table, suitable for small birds and various feed types. It features intricate lattice woodwork in a painted green finish, with a real verdigris copper roof and a natural rope for hanging.
Keeping plants picture-perfect is a matter of pride for the gardener. The clever Original Paper Potter can be used to make biodegradable plant pots from strips of old newspaper that are 4cm wide and up to 5cm deep – perfect for transplanting young plants without damaging their roots. Made from FSC-certified oak, the paper potter is both economical and eco-friendly.
