A better environment starts at the beginning, which is why we also focus on sustainable use in the design and composition of our collections. The Wild on Wildlife sub-collection, for example, helps the growth of biodiversity in gardens. Garden animals have a greater chance of surviving in the city because of the varied shelters and food to eat. As a result, buying and distributing the collection's items is a rewarding experience. And, in addition to boosting awareness of nature's beauty, the collection creates a lovely show in the yard! Hedgehogs, squirrels, toads, and ducks will all benefit from our support this autumn.
While the males are almost asleep, female hedgehogs and young hedgehogs sometimes wait until December to hibernate. Especially if it was difficult for them to find enough food. Construction and tidy gardens make this a problem. But there is still time to provide these hedgehogs with a tasty meal, a passage to the garden (with all those delicacies) and a good place to sleep before winter sets in. Let your customers park their robot lawn mower for a while, as this turns out to be one of the biggest causes of hedgehog deaths. So, in fall, it's a good idea to let the garden grow a little untidy. The hedgehog basket, for example, is an ideal housing because of its shape and willow branches and a good step towards a hegdehogfriendly garden. However, it is necessary to cover it with a thick layer of leaves and to point the opening to the north or north-east. You can see exactly how this is done in the film below:

Help the squirrel and... plant a tree? Squirrels often forget where they have buried their supply of nuts. This amusing yet crucial feature causes new trees to sprout up here and there. Squirrels play an important role in the ecosystem this way! Although the squirrel does not hibernate, it does collect food reserves in order to gain weight. Within a week, a squirrel may consume its own weight in seeds. Supplemental feeding with squirrel feeders is therefore not an unnecessary luxury. The smart feeder with lid not only prevents birds from stealing squirrel food, but it also keeps squirrels engaged on their own food. Because they are the only ones who have access to it. All feeders are made from sustainable FSC®-certified wood and are available in various designs.
The toad also contributes to biodiversity and organic gardening. I t swiftly eliminates dangerous insects (in and around the garden), for example. This amphibian does not hibernate in water, but chooses to crawl into holes in the earth instead. So Toads like to be in a sheltered, dark, and cool environment. This strong dolomite pot is particularly designed to provide such a refuge for toads. There is even less chance of a toad freezing with a covering of litter or leaf litter on and in this simulated cave. Not only do the Common Moot Toad, Backstreak Toad, Common Toad, Yellow-bellied Toad, Garlic Toad, American Toad, and Northern Toad utilize this refuge; frogs and salamanders do as well. The toad housing is also an excellent present and comes in a well packed gift box.
Wild ducks typically breed from March through June, with the search for and construction of a nest starting in February. The willow branch duck basket, which is also excellent for pochards and moorhens, provides them with a safe nest and cover. Place it as early as possible in the year, above or near water. It is best to place the basket with three or four sturdy long poles in the water up to a maximum of 1 metre above the water. Alternatively, the basket can be placed on the edge of the water in dense vegetation.
