Do you have an avid gardener in your life? Or perhaps someone who has always wanted to try getting their fingers green but never had the confidence to do it? Are you a gardener who prefers an all-natural gardening method and fancy treating yourself? Well, our Gardeners’ Selection Pack is perfect!

This box is full to the brim of our all-natural, eco-friendly gardening goodies and lets the receiver try a sample of each of our different gardening products to help their garden flourish without the need for chemicals.

This gift box is entirely plastic-free! The box is made from recycled paper and we don’t re-box it to send it out, just put an address label on it which means less waste. We even use paper tape to secure the box.

How can each of the different products in the Gardeners’ Selection Pack be used?

  • Sheep’s Wool Garden Felt – produced in Yorkshire, our 100% natural sheep’s wool garden felt can definitely be crowned as our most versatile garden product. Here are a few of our favourite ways to use it:
    • Mulching areas of a garden or allotment for a ‘no-dig’ method of gardening
    • Creating new beds without digging out turf by using the felt to cover areas of grass or weeds and topping it with compost
    • Using it when planting out a vegetable patch to protect against weeds, slugs and snail infestations
    • Keeping delicate plants protected and warm in the winter
    • Tied around roots balls of trees to protect them when transplanted
    • Capillary matting in plant pots
    • As a base layer for propagating seeds indoors
  • Jute Mulch Matsmade from recycled jute coffee sacks they fit neatly into pots or directly onto beds to protect plants. They do this by:
    • Reducing water evaporation
    • Creating a natural barrier against weeds
    • Reducing competition for water and nutrients
    • Reducing temperature fluctuations of the soil and roots
    • Providing nutrients for the plants as they compost down
    • Helping to deter greedy slugs and snails
  • Felt Shilliesthese are made from the scraps of felt leftover from the production of our Chimney Sheep and resemble the traditional slate shillies. These act as a mulch and are great for putting around the base of delicate plants. Doing so will:
    • Shield plants from harsh temperatures and weather conditions and our shillies give that bit of extra ‘oomph’ on top of this.
    • Absorb moisture and release it slowly due to the hygroscopic nature of Herdwick wool (which means you don’t have to spend as much time watering).
    • Deter slugs and snails due to the texture of the wool.
  • Wool Pellets made from a combination of sheep’s wool and muck, pressed into pellet form creating a nutrient-rich mulch and soil improver. They absorb water, as they biodegrade they slowly release nutrients into the soil (from the wool) and they deter slugs and snails. These are great to use in hanging baskets, allotments, vegetable patches and to help ornamental plants and flowers.
  • Natural Herdwick WoolHerdwick wool in its natural state is great to dot around your garden our put into a bird feeder so that birds can peck it out and use it inside their nest. Wool really is a wonderous material!
  • Natural Beeswax Hand Cream Egg – made by Aries Biokosmetik (bio-cosmetics) this 100% natural solid hand cream is perfect for those chapped, dry and stressed gardeners’ hands. Made with beeswax, olive oil and lavender oil the organic moisturiser is a hardworking gardener’s staple!
