Pollinating Bee Log

A thick timber filled with natural nesting tubes to form a pollinating bee log for mason bees and other solitary bees to nest in over winter.

Comes with strengthened seagrass rope to hang up in your garden. Bees are naturally attracted to little holes in wood, so in time they will come to nest in your pollinating bee log.

  • Benefits of having this pollinating log in your garden:Solitary bees are non-swarming, non-aggressive and are safe with children and pets.
  • Vital for pollinating fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers, bees play an important role in ensuring your garden is productive. It’s estimated that one third of the human food supply depends on insect pollination, most of this accomplished by bees.
  • Well insulated so will not need moving inside in winter.
  • Bees don’t just help provide a better yield of crops, they will be better formed, larger and taste better.
  • Provides a home for a variety of ‘over wintering’ insects.
  • Made out of sustainably sourced timber.

Who’s it for?

  • Perfect for gardeners who want to get the most out of their garden, allotment or planting containers.
  • Conservationists who are concerned about the decline of bees in the UK.
  • People interested in self-sufficiency when growing fruit and vegetables is more than a hobby.
  • Young children who will love observing the bees and insects make a home for the winter.
  • A great gift for the person who has everything – they can help bee conservation without lifting a finger.

About the manufacturers

These pollinating bee logs are made by a British company driven by their aim to conserve our natural ecosystem. When they aren’t making high quality products to observe, protect and attract wildlife, they’re offering environmental advice to the public and running educational workshops. Their ethical stance, superb products and the fact that they ticked all of our boxes as a company with a conscience means that we’re very happy to work with them and sell their products.

Care instructions

This bee log needs no further care; it’s designed to be hung outside all year round, although in time it will naturally weather slightly.

The Pollinating Bee Log is constructed from well insulated, durable sustainably sourced timber (cedar/larch/pine) as it is very important that nesting bees are kept dry.

Dimensions:

  • 160 x 160 x 160 - 1.5KG

Where to hang your bee log?

  • This pollinating bee log can be hung from a hook on the wall, from trees, pergolas or pole systems.
  • Hang your bee log by flowers, so they can easily dip in and out of the nectar.
  • Aim for a south facing position that catches the morning sun for happy warm bees.
  • Ideally hang your bee log from 3 – 7ft off the ground.

Gardening for good

The Eden Project is an educational charity. The money you spend in our shop helps to fund our social and environmental projects.

For example, our horticultural apprenticeship scheme is training individuals up to be professional horticulturists, helping to remedy the UK's real shortage of skilled gardeners.
