Bees, butterflies and insects play an essential role in pollinating our gardens. They transfer pollen from one flower to another, fertilising plants so they start forming fruits and seeds.
The Mr Fothergill's Bee and Insect Sanctuary kit contains a hexagonal wooden bee house and a sachet of pollinator friendly flower seeds to help attract bees and beneficial insects to your garden. The seed mix is made up of the following varieties:
Calendula (Calendula officinalis)
Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus)
Californian Poppy (Eschscholzia californica)
Fineflower (Gilia leptantha)
Toadflax (Linaria maroccana)
Alyssum (Lobularia maritima)
Wallflower (Erysimum cheiri)
Nemophila (Nemophila menziesii)
Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)
Marigold African (Tagetes erecta)
Chinese Forget-Me-Not (Cynoglossum amabile)
Borage (Borago officinalis)
Evening Primrose (Oenothera pallida)
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Native Violet (Viola hederacea)
Swan River Daisy (Brachycome iberidifolia)
Sage (Salvia officinalis)
This bee house is suited to Australian native solitary bees, a number of which are stingless. It is not a honey hive.
This bee & insect sanctuary is coated in a non toxic oil for protection making it weatherproof and safe for bees and insects. It is also made of FSC timber, meaning it is responsibly sourced and eco-friendly.
