Abercorn has always stocked a comprehensive range of Bird Feeders, Nest boxes, Bird Tables and Foods including Robin, Goldfinch, Wren and Thrush which is now complimented with Bee and Ladybird Boxes, Insect Houses, Bat Boxes and Hedgehog Houses. For our domestic friends we have Pet care products for a range of pets such as Dogs, Cats, Hamsters and Rabbits with food and healthcare products.
The UK seems to be a land of Plant and Animal lovers and this is confirmed by the interest in feeding the wild birds in the garden. As a garden centre, we off a huge range of products fo helping the garden birds. Everything from food which now is available for specific types of bird, Robin, Sparrow, Blackbird, Finches etc as well as traditional Bird Seed and Peanuts. Suet balls are also a favourite !
Bird Feeders come in all shapes and sizes from simple plastic and mesh designs to sophisticated Stainless Steel and Squirrel proof designs. At Abercorn we have a great range of these products to suit all budgets. We also have many types of bird tables that hang or that stand alone as well as classic and more contemporary bird houses for the different species.
