Seasonal Bird Seed Gift Boxes from Boxwild
Support the birds throughout the year with one of these seasonal bird seed gift boxes from Boxwild.
With the UK currently in the hands of a nation-wide heatwave, birds and wildlife need our help to support them. As well as making sure we leave out water for them, they also need a helping hand with feeding, and this is where Boxwild comes in.
Whether you are looking for seed to feed the birds this summer or a gift for Christmas, each of these gift boxes feature a varied range of hand-mixed blends that have been designed to supplement the natural diet for wild birds, according to the season.
The Summer Bird Seed Gift Box is just £18 and contains a handy seed scoop and approximately 1kg of seed blends that will keep the bird chirping all summer long. The Summer Blend is full of sunshiny goodness and is packed with juicy raisins and peanuts. Just pop in a hanging feeder and watch the flock congregate. This gift box also contains the Boxwild Bird Seed Blend, which is their trademark mix of 10 seeds including 3 types of Sunflower Seeds, Linseed, Chopped Peanuts and Safflower.
The last pack included is the Big Bird Blend, which is made from split green peas, sunflower hearts, safflower, whole wheat, kibbled maize and naked oats. As it is for the larger birds, just sprinkle on the ground or place in a ground feeder.
Wintertime is probably the most crucial time to bolster the diets of the wildlife in your garden. The Winter Bird Seed Gift Box features a pack of the Boxwild Bird Seed Blend, along with the Winter Bird Seed Blend, which is a nutritious, warming mix of seed designed with a higher fat content the birds need to keep up their energy and strength in the winter months.
