With bee and beneficial insect population in serious decline, Mr Fothergill’s is focused on producing products that will help increase these populations and keep them pollinating our crops far into the future.
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. Bees and other beneficial insects pollinate approximately 70 of the top 100 most popular food crops, and 80% of all flowering plants on Earth!
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.
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 paint 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.
