Wildlife product supplier Wildlife World has opened a display in conjunction with the Webbs of Wychbold garden centre near Birmingham, as part of the store’s new Wildlife Garden department.
The six metre long permanent stand is the largest display of the company’s products in the country, and since its installation Wildlife World has celebrated a significant increase in sales of its products with the store and across the company.
Webbs is one of the largest destination garden centres in the UK. Wildlife World has been working with the store for over 10 years and has supplied many of its products for bees, garden birds, amphibians and other common UK wildlife species.
This year, Wildlife World has expanded its range within the store and now offers its own display of products in the Wildlife Garden section. The mini Wildlife World store shows many of the company’s most popular products including a wide selection of different bird nest boxes and feeding trays, as well as habitats for bees, beneficial insects, hedgehogs and amphibians.
Wildlife World worked with Worcestershire Wildlife Trust in producing the display and it includes a special graphics board of the Trust’s site and on-going work which supports local wildlife. The display is also decorated with four information boards highlighting the main facts on birds, bees, beneficial insects and amphibians and how safe habitats are very important to their survival. Small information blackboards and digital seasonal information is also displayed across the stand for more information on the company’s products.
Wildlife World managing director Norman Sellers commented: “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.”
He continued: “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!”
