Gardening Season Is Here and the Woodfuel Team have got you covered!
Back by popular demand….
We were so impressed with the performance of the Dalefoot range of composts last year and so were our customers. We’ve just taken delivery of some new stock of the full range so get it while you can!
Now with added Comfrey! The Wool Compost range now has a hat-trick of performance-packed natural ingredients. Find out more…
The full range is 100% Peat-free
No need to feed – None of the Dalefoot composts require any additional feed and will feed your plants throughout the season
Reduced watering – The wool content in Dalefoot composts provides natural water retention meaning less watering is required than other composts
Soil Association approved – Dalefoot composts are sustainably made from from renewable, natural ingredients on their farm in the Lake District and are approved for organic growing by the Soil Association.
A returning favourite this season…

This growing medium is based on one widely used throughout the UK by professional growers and is suitable for a wide range of uses around the garden. Melcourt SylvaGrow Multi-purpose contains no peat or green waste compost.

Enough about the gardening, what about the birds?…
Premium Wild Bird Feeds
We stock a huge range of premium feeds for your garden birds. We’ve got everything from straight, aflatoxin-free peanuts to premium seed mixes and suet products. Come and browse the full range in our Dumfries store.
Our staff are always on hand to offer help and advice. We’re incredibly lucky to have a huge variety of garden birds in the UK. Our Johnston & Jeff range covers all bases.
Wild birds are busy at this time of year and bring colour, fun and song to our gardens. Providing them with essential nutrients is a great way to encourage them to your garden.
Why not treat yourself to a garden bird book or even use the RSPB wild bird identifier. It’s a great way to teach the kids about wildlife and encourage them to protect and support the population.
Bird Feeders and Habitats
We also stock a beautiful range of wild bird habitats from Nestbox Co.
Made from FSC certified timber, these look great in the garden and blend in nicely in hedgerows and trees. Our staff will be happy to help you find the right type of home for your feathered friends.
You could even branch out a little further and try a bat box or Owl Nesting Box! Bats are amazing creatures to have in your garden and work wonders for insect control. A real bonus for the gardening enthusiast!
We also have a lot of protected species here in the UK and providing safe habitats is a great way to help them thrive.
Wood Fuel Coop also stock the excellent RingPull bird feeders. Great quality and easy-clean, if you haven’t tried them yet then we highly recommend!
We’re proud to support the Lower Nithsdale Red Squirrel Group
In our Dumfries store, as well as gardening and wild bird supplies, you will also find a range of red squirrel feeds. We stock premium quality feeds and treats for encouraging and supporting the red squirrel population in our area. You will also find squirrel feeders on our shelves.
We’re incredibly lucky to have one of the biggest red squirrel populations in the UK. But they still need our help! Between loss of habitat, disease and grey squirrel problems, this beautiful, native creature has a bit of a tough time. Groups like LNRSG work tirelessly to monitor and protect our population. The great news is that there’s plenty you can do to help. Learn more about their work here.
