Recycled garden gifts for garden lovers who love recycling from the National Trust for Scotland

Posted on

Did you know that the National Trust for Scotland have a number of garden gifts in their online shop, and they are recycled?

Their are goods there which have been made from recycled plant pots, yoghurt pots, paper packaging and other materials.   They've got bird feeders and pots you can give - I think it's a very clever idea!

This Recycled Bird Cake Kit has been recycled from yoghurt pots!


This is a Recycled Bird Cake Kit for £10.00

The kit has a cake mould to hold the cake in place, suet and bird seed to get you started, and a recipe book to help you make your own concoctions for your feathered friends who come to visit.

There's also a chalk board, so you can write up a sort of to do list if you wanted, or things you need to get for the garden etc, plus recycled garden plant labels, which can help you remember what you planted where - it's always a bit of a surprise to me what's come up, because I can never remember.   I'm a kind of "plant and pray that something will appear" gardener.

There are also some pots made of recycled materials, here's one:

the plant doesn't come with it, but it does look pretty in it!
