Bee and Insect Sanctuary for your garden. 

Bees and beneficial insects play an essential role as pollinators in our gardens. They transfer pollen from one flower to another, fertilising plants so they start forming fruits and seeds.

Unfortunately, bees and other beneficial insects are under increasing threat due to pesticides, parasites and climate change – but we can help them by using responsible gardening practices, planting flowers to attract them and providing them with shelter.

Our hexagonal Bee & Insect Sanctuary Kit contains a hexagonal wooden sanctuary and a sachet of pollinator friendly flower seeds to help attract bees and beneficial insects to your garden.

Combine multiple units to create a larger bee and insect sanctuary design!

The seed mix is made up of the following varieties and covers approximately 2m2:

  • 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 kit is most suited towards solitary bees and other beneficial insects; it is not a honey hive. The sanctuary is coated in a nontoxic 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.

Dimensions: 200mm(w) x 175mm(h) x 70mm(d)
