About us


“Buglife are delighted to announce our endorsement and association with the Buttacup range. These ingenious devices will help slow the flow of water particularly in built up areas potentially reducing the risk of flooding and also providing self watering planting space that can be used to create oasis of food and shelter for the small things that run the planet. Making a real contribution to saving our bees, butterflies and other vital bugs.”

Paul Hetherington, Director of Communications at Buglife

Who we are…

Buttacup was established in 2015 by Bjorn Wood who had a creative idea whilst looking at an ugly but hugely functional water butt in his family’s garden. A series of designs and ideas followed and Buttacup was successfully launched in the Autumn 2015 at GLEE gardening show at the NEC in Birmingham.

Since the launch, Buttacup has been highly recommended by GIMA (Garden Industry Manufacturer’s Association) and came runner up in the GLEE 2015 Best New Products Awards. Buttacup has also been recently endorsed by the conservation charity ‘Buglife’.

Buttacup products are unique, stylish, and functional. They are designed to brighten up your home and garden, and have introduced a fun and easy way to garden and build new habitats for flora and fauna.

Buttacup products are made in the UK.
