The beautiful beepot bee house and concrete planter makes a great gift for any lover of nature who also loves their garden and cares about beautiful design. It is available in natural white concrete or in a stunning shade of charcoal, the two look brilliant together.
The beepot is a bee hotel inspired by Green & Blue’s award-winning bee brick, only this time they’ve added a diner! The beepot is a stylish concrete planter combining a safe nesting site for solitary bees with a space for perfect pollinator planting, meaning a food source for the bees is never far away. You could call it a Bee&B!
The beepot has cavities where solitary bees, mainly leaf cutter and red mason, 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. The beepot features a planter to the side where you can ensure bee friendly planting means there's a vital food source for bees right on their doorstep.
Solitary bees are facing a dramatic decline in numbers due to disease, an increase in chemical use and habitat loss. The role they play in pollination accounts for around 1/3 of the food we eat and they are therefore a vital part of our environment. The beepot is perfect for urban spaces and places where there may not be alternative nesting sites for bees and is a beautiful concrete planter.
Solitary bees are harmless and will not sting you unless you squash them, even then their stings are not painful, meaning they are safe to encourage around pets and children.
The beepot should be positioned in a warm sunny spot, south facing, with no vegetation in front of the holes. Ideally placed at least 1 metre from the ground.
The beepot is made in Cornwall from cast concrete. Green & Blue use up to 70% waste materials from the China Clay industry in their concrete
