Here at Amazing PR we have always been advocates of buying British wherever possible. However, with the Olympics and Queen’s Diamond Jubilee upon us we have recently become more patriotic than ever and have been keen to seek out and support our home grown produce wherever possible.
Nonetheless, although we will often choose British grown or produced food for ourselves, not only to support local farmers but also for the benefits to our environment and wildlife (not to mention it is a lot more cost effective) we seldom pay as much attention to ‘Buy British’ when it comes to our pets and, for those that do, the wildlife we feed. Here in the UK we are known as a nation of bird lovers and one in three of us now supports and encourages wildlife in our gardens. In order to help protect our environment and wildlife it makes sense that the source of the birdfood we feed them should be as local as possible. Natural gardening company Wiggly Wigglers have recently launched an all-British seed mix which, believe it or not, is the first of its kind in the UK.As birdseed typically includes ingredients which can not be grown here, such as peanuts, it is often exported and shipped long distances and therefore more expensive and carbon footprint heavy. Wiggly Wigglers seed is sown, grown, cleaned, mixed and bagged entirely by British Farmers and the mixture of black sunflower seeds, indigo wheat, rolled oats, rapeseed, millet, linseed, canary seed and a little oyster grit, is guaranteed to attract visitors to your bird table. The seed has been designed to support a wide range of birds so you may have some new guests and as it is free flowing it can be used in feeders as well as on your bird table.
Wiggly Wigglers Birdseed is available through selected farmshops, garden centres and online at www.wigglywigglers.co.uk.
