It is important to feed the wild birds in your garden (or attract wild birds into your garden) in autumn and winter as this is when their natural food is scarce.
During the colder months birds require high energy food to maintain their fat reserves to survive the long winter. The rspb recommend establishing a routine where you put out food and water on a regular basis, adjusting quantity to demand and removing any uneaten food.
At Ben Reid Garden Centre we stock a wide range of bird feeders, seeds, nuts, suet bites and energy balls to keep even the pickiest of birds happy in your garden.
Now is the time to be thinking about planting Raspberry canes to supply delicious home grown rasps in the summer months. At Ben Reid Garden Centre we have several varieties to choose, from sweet juicy fruit to sharper flavours ideal for cooking and jam making.
Come and talk to our team on how to plant and care for your raspberry canes or read more information from the RHS how to grow raspberries
If you haven’t been up to see us lately come and have a look at our recently arrived indoor plants. With the weather turning colder its time to bring nature inside to add some colour and ambience to your home and reap the health rewards of growing indoors.
The benefits of indoor plants include helping you to improve the air quality, increasing oxygen and reducing carbon monoxide, in your home. Plants help to purify the air and remove toxic chemicals found in every home. The humidity created by indoor plants can also help with coughs and colds associated with the winter months, helping to deter illness and boost healing.
Not to mention the stress relieving benefits of caring for your colourful new additions.
