Without insects our gardens would not bloom, our plants would not fruit and birds would be very hungry.....
With dwindling natual areas in our urban environments help our garden with an insect hotel.
This insect hotel provides a home for pollinators and predatory insects. Ideal for solitary bees, lacewings, ladybirds and native wasps.
Unique dual chamber insect hotel with upper bamboo tubes (various diameters) and lower enclosed chamber with small diameter entrances.
Protected from the weather by a gabled roof and with hanging bracket for stability
made from natural untreated pine and bamboo.
Leaf cutter and resin bees are great pollinators. They will lay their eggs in the bamboo tubes and fill them with food to ensure the next generation. Predatory wasps will stuff the tubes full of greenfly larva, aphids and caterpillers to feed their emerging young. Ladybirds and lacewings, the ravenous predators of aphids, will shelter in the lower chamber during cooler weather. Each will contribute to a healthier and more dynamic ecosystem in your garden.
help insects in your garden by planting open single head flowers, planting the same plants in clusters rather than peppered around the garden, plant for a succession of flowers throughout the year. Some good varieties include snowdrops, aconites, blackthorn, mahonia, hollyhocks, foxgloves, forget me nots, borage, lavender, wild thyme, buddleia and let the clover grow in your lawn. If you have space for a wild patch they also love dandelion and nettle.
