Insect / Wildlife Houses and Food
It is important to encourage wildlife into our gardens as many of these visitors will naturally feed on plant pests helping to reduce pest numbers PLUS butterflies and bees will ensure your fruit, vegetables and flowers are pollinated.
This Wooden Bumblebee Shelter has been designed to house the Green Gardener Bumblebee Box.

Made from weatherproof plywood it has a flat roof and comes complete with a Green Gardener Bumblebee Box. Delivered with the bees, simply open the nectar supply and the trap door and position in a sheltered spot ideally where it gets the morning sun. Designed to be re-usable, each year a new colony can be purchased separately and the shelter re-used.
