Green&Blue set up Solitary Bee Week to raise awareness of our solitary bee population, which make up 90 per cent of our bee species in the UK.

Solitary bees don’t produce honey, don’t have a queen and don’t live in hives, which means they are not aggressive and are safe to encourage into your garden. They are also really good pollinators.

Green&Blue are a Cornish company who design and make a stylish range of products for the garden and for construction, created to give nature a home or a place to nest, or to eat.

The beautiful Beepot bee house and concrete planter makes a great gift for any lover of nature who also loves their garden and cares about beautiful design. It is available in natural white concrete or in a stunning shade of charcoal, the two look brilliant together.

The Beepot is a bee hotel inspired by Green&Blue’s award winning bee brick, only this time they’ve added a diner! 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.

This year’s Solitary Bee Week takes place from the Monday 1 – Sunday 7 July and you can check out the website to find out how you can get involved, including wearing your stripes on Wednesday 3 July.
