The beautiful Beepot bee house and concrete planter makes a great gift for any lover of nature who also loves their garden and loves beautiful, simple design.
The Beepot is a bee house inspired by their award-winning bee brick. The Beepot is a stylish concrete planter combining a safe nesting site for solitary bees with a space for perfect pollinator planting, meaning a food source for the bees is never far away. You could call it a Bee&B!
Solitary bees are facing massive decline, in part due to habitat loss. By using the Beepot in your garden, allotment or urban space you are helping the bees to continue the vital pollination work they do and they are also fascinating to watch and safe to encourage around children and pets as they are non-aggressive.
The Beepot is made in Cornwall from cast concrete. Green&Blue use up to 75% waste materials from the Cornish China Clay industry in their concrete

The Beepot should be positioned in a warm sunny spot, south facing, with no vegetation in front of the holes. Ideally placed at least 1/2 metre from the ground.
The Beepot bee hotel has cavities where solitary bees, mainly leaf cutter and red mason, will lay their eggs, sealing the entrance with mud or chewed up vegetation. Offspring emerge in the Spring and begin the process of nesting again, repeating the cycle. The Beepot features a planter to the side where you can ensure bee-friendly planting means there's a vital food source for bees right on their doorstep.
Solitary bees are facing a dramatic decline in numbers due to disease, an increase in chemical use and habitat loss. The role they play in pollination accounts for around 1/3 of the food we eat and they are therefore a vital part of our environment. The Beepot is perfect for urban spaces and places where there may not be alternative nesting sites for bees and is a beautiful concrete planter.
Solitary bees are harmless and will not sting you unless you squash them, even then their stings are not painful, meaning they are safe to encourage around pets and children.
Green&Blue are based in the beautiful seaside town of Perranporth in Cornwall, UK, co-founded in 2005 by husband and wife team Kate and Gavin Christman. After years working at Dyson and designing in their spare time, Kate and Gavin created the Birdball and moved down to Cornwall to start the company. Working from a garden shed for a few years the couple followed their passion of designing beautiful, stylish products that help wildlife.
