Webbs garden centres displays Wildlife World range in new department

Wildlife World has opened a six-metre display in conjunction with the Webbs of Wychbold garden centre near Birmingham as part of the store's new Wildlife Garden department.

Wildlife World managing director Norman Sellers said: "Webbs is a very impressive garden centre with such a wide selection of great products for homes and gardens and we are pleased to have been working with them for many years. To now be a main feature in the garden and wildlife section is a great pleasure and we hope that the display of products and information will encourage its customers to help the conservation of so many wildlife species.

"We have taken an educational approach to our display in the store with the hope that customers will gain a better understanding of the threat many wildlife species are under. Some people also do not understand how important species such as solitary bees, lacewings or ladybirds are to our gardens in terms of pollination and pest control and so we have created a number of information boards to communicate this. We hope that these will encourage and inspire gardeners or families with young children to become more active in wildlife conservation and place or create their very own habitats and feeders for the wildlife in their gardens. This will have a great impact on not only helping the many species, but will also encourage them more into gardens, which is always delightful to see."
