Mr Fothergill’s RSPB range of seeds has been added to the the seed specialist's main seed collection and extended to 27 varieties.

The RSPB, the country’s largest nature conservation charity, is inspiring everyone to give nature a home and help protect British wildlife. All varieties in the range are a valuable source of pollen for pollinators or a great source of food for birds. Among the most distinctive are the hummingbird hawk-moth’s favourite Valerian, Verbena bonariensis loved by butterflies, bees and birds and Teasel with its spiky seed heads that are a valuable food source for birds.

Mr Fothergill’s has raised £29,360 for the charity since the seed partnership in began in 2014. Seed supplied is enough for gardeners to have created approximately 73.6 hectares of wildlife welcoming gardens, an area equivalent to one third of the RSPB’s Sandy Nature Reserve, The Lodge. It means, hundreds of bees, butterflies and birds found safe haven in colourful gardens grown with Mr Fothergill’s seeds and RSPB expertise.

Besides single packets Mr Fothergill’s offers three different flowers mixes endorsed by RSPB experts, one for birds, one for bees and one for pollinators and beneficial insects. The range will be featured in all RSPB shops, online and in outlets that sell Mr Fothergill's Seeds.
