GIVE SOLITARY BEES A HOME
Bee Cell and Seedbom gift set including a Concrete Bee Cell and a Pollinator Beebom.
The Bee Cell is a single cell nesting site designed for solitary bees. Inspired by the guerilla gardening movement, the Bee Cell bee house makes a great gift for the garden lover in your life and is a super-easy way to create additional space for cavity-nesting solitary bee species. The wrap contains lots of info to help spread awareness about our brilliant bees.
Cast in concrete, using up to 70% waste material from the Cornish China clay industry.
The Bee Cell™ should be positioned in a warm sunny spot, south-facing, with no vegetation in front of the fascia. Ideally placed at least 1/2 metre from the ground with no upward limit.
Bee Cell™ is solid at the back and has a single cavity where solitary bees, such as red mason and leafcutter bees, will lay their eggs, sealing the entrance with mud or chewed up vegetation. Offspring emerge in the Spring and begin the process of nesting again, repeating the cycle.
Choose from 3 colour options:
SEED MIX* – Cornflower, Vipers Bugloss, Wild Marjoram, Red Clover, Borage & Phacelia.
UK NATIVE % – 85%
*Contains only species found on the RHS Perfect for Pollinators List
