G Plants launches new wildlife products

Seed and bulb suppliers G Plants has announced a range of new wildlife products to add to its Bee Friends with Nature range.

The new products include a set of wooden nature homes, each including roofs in which Bee Friends seeds can be sown to encourage wildlife to roost.

More new products include porcelain nesting balls (RRP £6.99), feeders for birds (RRP £4.99) and nectar rich spring flowering bulbs (RRP £5.99).


G Plants director Alex Reihl said: "The new nature homes have been equally developed with wildlife, retailers and consumers in mind. For insects, birds and bats, the products are mini ecosystems that provide not only shelter but also a readily available food source. Retailers can expect to enjoy a healthy profit margin from each product and also the opportunity to easily cross merchandise Bee Friends wildflower seeds, leading to greater overall basket spend. Consumers will be drawn to the obvious extra value that a multi-use product offers – and with the products at a highly competitive price point, we expect the Bee Friends range to do well in stores this autumn."

New Bee Friends products from G Plants: Small-bird house, RRP £7.99, Robin and larger bird house, RRP £7.99, Bee & insect hotel, RRP £7.99, Butterfly house, RRP £7.99, Native bat box, RRP £7.99.
