Give a gift to help your loved one create a wildlife garden

Are you looking for garden ideas for gifts for the garden?  Well, if your loved one cares about wildlife, you could give them a gift to help create a wildlife garden.  

There are some very attractive garden gifts about which will attract garden birds, such as sparrows, robins, wrens, swallow, and insects, and all sorts of other wildlife from hedgehogs to  butterflies and bats.   Every garden counts to help with wildlife conservation, no matter how large or small the garden is. 

Here are some examples of some of the things for the garden you can buy anyone who loves wildlife & their gardens. 

 

 Solitary Bee Hive from Find Me a Gift

Solitary Bee Hives
The first thing to mention is that Solitary Bee Hives are for non-swarming bees which usually live in trees. Bee Hives help attract bees & hibernating ladybirds, and they make great gifts for anyone who loves their garden & wants to help wildlife.  The bee hive is made from sustainable sources.  The Bee Hive needs to be placed in a warm & sunny place, near soil & nectar sources such as fruit, flowers or vegetables so this gift is idea for an orchard or to go in a garden.  Solitary bees use it from about February onwards.
£19.99 from Find Me a Gift

Bempton Hanging Bird Table from Find Me a Gift
Bempton Hanging Bird Table 
The idea behind this table is that the smaller birds can tuck in, as the bird table's design prevents the bigger birds such as large crows, pigeons, seagulls and magpies, taking their food. The table has lattice woodwork and a copper roof in a rustic look and you can hang it from a tree or attach it to a post. Like anything which encourages garden birds to come and feed, it would make a great house-warming gift, but it's also great for anyone who loves birds, nature and wildlife lovers. 
£24.99
