 Good Morning everyone!!  As you may have noticed on our website - we love ladybirds!  They are great for the garden and they are cute.  So today I am not just going to show you a "Product of the Week" but I have put together some of our ladybird items to make it our "Products of the Week"  So we have a fantastic Ladybird House http://www.ruddickgardengifts.co.uk/birds/ladybird_house.html  which you will find on our Best For Birds page.  It has been designed to allow ladybirds to shelter whilst
keeping out other likely inhabitants or predators and so that ladybirds can access it easily.  Ladybirds often hibernate in clusters and it is advisable to put some leaves inside to make them feel at home so the house has a pull down front to give easy access for you to do this.  The house measures 17x10x22cm and is priced at just £9.99.

 Next up are our Seeds which have been put together to encourage ladybirds to come into your garden.  You will find these on our Seeds page http://www.ruddickgardengifts.co.uk/seeds/ladybirds.html  They are part of     the Garden's Friends Range.  In each box there are 28 annual and perennial species including borage, cornflowers and chamomile. The contents of the box will cover a 7m2 area and is priced at £9.99 and as you can see from the above picture you really do get a beautiful display.  Finally we have our Ladybird Thermometer.                                                                        
 This is a bright and fun item for young and old alike.  There are four suction pads on the reverse of the ladybird and you just attach these to your outside window and then you can see the temperature outside from the inside! You will find this on our What's The Weather page and it is priced at just £4.99.

So there you have it, our ladybird products which I think are all great.  Remember ladybirds do a lot of good in the garden as well as being a joy to watch.  Did you know for example that an adult ladybird eats over 100 aphids per day?! which is a really good reason for encouraging them into your garden and making them comfortable when they get there.
