Sowing your seeds:

  1. Prepare the chosen area for your seeds by turning or raking the soil until you have a good crumbly consistency, removing any stones and weeds as you go.
  2. Open the seed sachet and shake out the seeds thinly and evenly directly over the prepared area.
  3. Gently rake over the seed bed to lightly cover the seeds.
  4. Water well until the plants are established
  • Some perennial varieties may not flower until the second year.
  • Once the flowers start to appear, pollinating insects and bees will soon follow, and your garden will be a hive of activity!

As pollinators, bees, butterflies and insects play an essential role in our gardens transferring pollen from one flower to another, fertilising plants so they start forming fruits and seeds, 70 of the top 100 most popular food crops are pollinated by bees, and they pollinate 80% of all flowering plants on Earth!  Unfortunately, bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects are under increasing threat due to pesticides, parasites and climate change – but we can help them by using responsible gardening practices, planting flowers to attract them and providing them with shelter.

Dimensions: 250mm(w) x 305mm(h) x 90mm(d)

This bee & insect house is coated in a non toxic paint for protection making it weatherproof and safe for bees and insects. 

This bee house is suited to native solitary bees, a number of which are stingless. It is not a honey hive.
