It’s great that so many people have made their own blue hearts, but if you’re not able to then you can now buy one from us.
This small heart is approximately 15 x 15cm and 2cm thick and is perfect for small lawns, flower beds and container gardens. It doesn’t come with a stake or post, but has 4 holes drilled in it and is supplied with jute twine so you can tie it to your own post, or a gate, tree, fence etc.
Made from offcuts and surplus boards of Scottish grown larch from a local sawmill. The wood is naturally very durable, so the hearts will last a long time out in our British weather. They are painted with a water-based and child/plant safe paint and packaged in recycled and recyclable packaging that is entirely plastic free.
These hearts are made by Al Whitworth who runs a small wooodworking business called Atlantic Drift in the Scottish Highlands. Al is passionate about rewilding and together with his wife, they manage their 8 acre croft for the benefit of wildlife and biodiversity, with wildflower meadows, woodland and wetland habitats amongst the vegetable and fruit growing for themselves, and trees for timber. You can read more at the Atlantic Drift website.
After Al’s basic manufacturing costs, all profits from the sale of these hearts goes to help fund the BLUE Campaign, helping to pay for website costs, travel expenses etc so we can get the campaign out to more people. We really appreciate your support!
Please note that wooden hearts are made to order so please allow 10 days for delivery.
Postage and packaging is £3 per order to the UK, no matter how many you buy. Please get in touch for orders outside the UK.
CUSTOMISATION / ENGRAVING
We are able to customise these hearts with engraved text for an extra £1.50. By default we will engrave “BLUE Campaign” onto the heart, but if you’d prefer different text then please just let us know in the order notes at the checkout. (Note that the photo of the engraved heart on this page is actually a large one).
Also, if you’d prefer to not have the holes for tying it on, just let us know in the order notes when you check out.
