This bamboo Bee and Bug House makes a great addition to any garden. Providing nesting tubes and a home for endangered solitary bees is one way of helping biodiversity and attracting pollinators to your garden. Made from hollow bamboo stalks, it provides much-needed shelter for all sorts of bees and bugs.

A Bee Hotel is a magnet for solitary bees and spring-nesting mason bees. A place for them to lay their eggs and raise their young. Solitary bees are harmless and not aggressive.

The best time to put up a bee house is in late winter, but other bee species will use the tubes throughout the growing season, so there is no wrong time to put it up.

The more southerly facing that you place the Bee Hotel, the better, as the extra warmth will help bees over the cold winter. Ensure the Bee hotel is positioned between 1 and 1.5m off the ground.

              Connecting to Nature

              Biodiversity & Wellbeing - feeling closer to the wider natural world is important for us all.

              Connecting to Nature aims to raise happiness levels by introducing the birds and the bees to households nationwide. They produce Irish Native Wildflower Seeds on their own sites in Faithlegg, Co Waterford, and the mixtures are curated to provide both food for wildlife and colour throughout the year.

              Their ethos is simple; being connected with nature is about feeling close to the wider natural world, it’s a relationship that helps us feel good. Sowing wildflowers and feeding birds are a wonderful way to feel closer to nature and bring wildlife closer to you.

              The business is the brainchild of Julie Power, whose Waterford-based family have been in the seed business for six generations, initially established in 1859 as Power Seeds which operated from Ballinakill, Dunmore Road and later from Glenville where the remnants of the old seed plant can still be seen today.

              “You don’t have to be in the countryside to connect with nature, all you have to do is create an environment that consistently attracts birds and bees”.
