Flutter Butter: The peanut butter for birds
There is just something about Flutter Butter that garden birds find irresistible! It might be that nutty aroma, or the wonderful added fruit and insects. Unlike most human peanut butter, Flutter butter is naturally low in salt and safe for birds. Peanuts are super nutritious: being high in protein and high in calories, which is great during the cold winters or nesting season. Flutter butter is also rich in wholesome carbohydrates which helps provide a complete diet.
The only trouble you will have is deciding on which flavour to buy: Original, Buggy or Fruity. Or to make life easier, just get them all!
Creating a garden that you can be proud of is important, but more so, you want an outdoor space that you can enjoy. There are certainly some things that you might have been putting off when it comes to home maintenance and upkeep, so here are some things you can do in your garden this year.
Incorporate More Wildlife
Incorporating into your garden can be beneficial to you and the wildlife itself. There are many varieties of bugs, birds, and other animals that need our help to thrive and survive. Getting the right food is important, and there are plenty of different varieties out there that can cater to different types of animals that come onto your property. Flutter Butter is a fantastic one for birds as they love the nutty smell that it creates. The flutter butter pods are worth getting, and it is also good to know what each type of wildlife loves to eat. For example, squirrels love nuts whilst hedgehogs are a fan of dog/cat food so long as it is not fish.
Fix Anything That’s Broken
For anything in your garden that is broken, it’s worth getting it fixed. Being able to enjoy your outdoor space is important, and you are only going to enjoy it if you can actually sit outside. There’s outdoor furniture that can become worn and tired over the years, and visually, outdoor decor can be the same. You might want to touch-up any fences with paint and get rid of any limescale or mould around water fountains etc. Doing these fixes is going to improve the appearance of your garden so that you can enjoy it with friends and family members all year round.
Try Growing Your Own Food
Ever tried to grow your own food? Well, if you have the space in your garden to do so, it has become increasingly popular to grow fruit and vegetables in your own back garden. It can provide a challenge when it comes to certain pests and wildlife taking it or damaging its growth, but it’s satisfying when you manage to harvest produce that you can eat. Just think of the money you will save from being more sustainable as a household. Try starting off with more simple produce before going onto those food items that might take a little more of your time to prune and look after.
Spend More Time In It
And probably the most important thing to do when it comes to your garden is to spend more time in it. It is good to get the most out of your outdoor space, especially when the weather is nice. Even if it is not particularly pleasant, there are items you can purchase so that you can enjoy the weather come rain or shine. Firepits and gazebos are good things to have readily available when necessary.
Doing more to your garden this year might certainly be needed. Do not ignore your outdoor space and make the most of it when you can with your household.
