A purpose built home for bees

We can all do our bit to encourage greater numbers of bumblebees to help pollinate fruit, veg and flowers. So how about giving a hive a purpose built home. The Beepol lodge, made from FSC wood, comes ready assembled with entry and exit holes. All you need do is choose a secluded spot or a tree to site it. Use the voucher that’s included to send off for your first colony of bees, which can be delivered anytime between March and August.
