Bee houses

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Wild At Home - WWW.GREENANDBLUE.CO.UK

Of course you can cre­ate a per­fectly good home for soli­tary bees with a bun­dle of bam­boo canes, but you have to love the stylish dwellings de­signed by Cor­nish company Green&Blue. Stand­ing out from the crowd of bee ho­tels on the mar­ket, these pleas­ingly min­i­mal­ist prod­ucts are cast in con­crete, 75 per cent of which com­prises waste ma­te­rial from China clay pro­cess­ing. The col­lec­tion in­cludes the renowned Bee Bricks and Blocks (com­ing to a new-build near you); Beepots (smart­look­ing planters with built-in nest­ing tun­nels); and the new­est ad­di­tion – the Beep­ost, a strik­ing, 230cm-tall nest­ing tower for the more am­bi­tious land­scaper. Prices start at£18.75.

Beepots (£49 each) of­fer food and shel­ter.
