Product Description

This delightful birdhouse planter is a fantastic gift for any wildlife lover wanting to give a home to garden birds and grow some beautiful flowers at the same. The clever design gives a home to birds in the bottom part, accessed by a hole at the front, whilst the top section is a planter, perfect for growing small plants and giving you the best looking nesting box around!

The birdhouse is complete with compost and sweet pea ‘Miniature Sweetheart’ seeds. These lovely flowers, in gorgeous shades of pink, red, purple and white will bloom from June until September, filling the planter and tumbling over the sides and they’ll smell divine too. Like all sweet peas, the more you pick them, the more they’ll flower, so bring bunches of them indoors to enjoy in your home.

To attract birds, we recommend placing it facing north or east to keep the sun and the worst of the wind and rain away, at least 2 m (6˝ ft) above the ground.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Try growing a ‘living roof’ on your birdhouse by planting it with sedums or sempervivums!

Care Guide

How To Grow:

  • Sow indoors for surest results, January to March, or September to October, 1.5cm (˝in) deep, 5 seeds per 12cm (5in) pot of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, greenhouse or on a cool windowsill. A temperature of 15°C (60°F) is ideal. Seedlings usually appear in 12-21 days. Keep moist. Pinch out the growing tip when 2 pairs of leaves have formed to encourage bushy growth. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, March to May, 30cm (12in) apart. Support with tall canes or netting.
  • Or sow outdoors, April to May, where they are to flower, 1.5cm (˝in) deep, directly into finely prepared well-drained soil that has already been watered. Sow 2 seeds together every 30cm (12in). Remove weaker seedling, which can then be transplanted. Seeds sown in autumn generally flower earlier the following year.
    Flowers from May to October. Pick blooms regularly to prolong the flowering season.


Aftercare:

  • Use tap water rather than water from a rain butt to avoid the potential of introducing disease to the young plants.
  • Autumn sowings should be overwintered in cool but frost-free conditions.
