Bees have long been central to our harvests, our mythologies and our very existence. They give us sweetness, the beauty of flowers and a third of the food we eat. Sadly one third of Ireland’s 97 wild bee species are threatened with extinction but thankfully we can help! Welcome bees to your garden by providing food and shelter.
We are really excited about our new range of bee hotels. These beautiful cast concrete bee blocks and bee pots are from Green and Blue, handmade in Britain. If you’re looking for a great gift for garden lovers, design lovers and nature lovers then these are gifts that keep giving.
The Beepot is a stylish cast concrete planter combining a safe nesting spot for solitary bees with a space for planting bee friendly flowers, meaning a food source for the bees is never far away. This is no air Bee&B, this is a 5 star luxury boutique hotel! Place in a sunny spot in your garden, balcony or on your windowsill to announce there are rooms to let.
The Bee Block will provide a safe little nest for bees in your garden. It will look lovely in your garden or used as a block in building a wall or structure. Unlike wooden bee hotels this super stylish modern hostel won't rot from our rainy Irish weather.
These bee friendly pieces are made by hand in Cornwall from concrete, using up to 70% waste material from the Cornish China clay industry. Both the Beepot and Bee Block are available in natural white concrete, a stunning shade of charcoal and a bright sunny yellow.
