Here are 10 handy tips for you to take note of and help you in your mission to look after our wildlife in the most cost effective, fandabby way!
Tip 1: Buy the best quality mix you can but if you want to be frugal avoid the "no mess" or "huskless" seeds - You pay a lot more for the shelling.
Tip 2: Buy bird seed in bags of 12.55kg or more - WHY? It's VAT FREE when the weight is over 12.55kg.
Tip 3: Plant a bareroot hedge - it's cheaper than a fence and it makes a great habitat and food source for hedgehogs, bats, birds, bugs bees and butterflies.
Tip 4: Feed kitchen scraps to your birds as well as birdseed, fats and nuts. They love some scraps like potatoes (not chips), cheese (grated), bacon Rind (not salty), dried fruit and pastry.
