The bee hotel is a great way to help boost the population of bees in your garden!
Also included in the gift box is a packet of seeds specially selected to attract bees and other beneficial insects to your garden.
Bees are probably the most important pollinators of crops and other plants. Many bee species are in decline due to loss of nesting and feeding habitats.
Not all bees live in hives, this bee hotel mimics the conditions suitable for non aggressive and non swarming solitary bees which like to nest in tiny spaces such as hollow stems. The wooden stems in the bee hotel are of different lengths adding authenticity to the habitat.
Ideally placed in a sunny position, preferably south facing, a number of bee species could take up residence but those most likely are red mason bees, blue mason bees, leaf cutter bees and white faced bees.
The flower seeds for bees are a colourful blend of hardy annuals which are easy to grow and include cornflowers, candytuft, zinnia, poppy, nigella, silene and many other varieties which flower throughout the summer.
The bee hotel and flowers for bees will make a wonderful focal point to observe the activities of bees in your garden.
Why not have the bee hotel gift wrapped? Gift wrap includes quality wrapping paper, bow and gift tag with your message. Please note if you choose the additional gift wrap option, the design may vary slightly from that pictured.
