Mikes advice is very good. The Grubs will feed on the Pollen and Necter that the parent placed in each cell,pupate over winter and then emerge in spring. I have been very successful with a homemade Bug House. Lots of Leafcutter and Mason Bees ( South East facing ) I was potting up young plants yesterday, took a 30 minute break to watch the bees busy at work in the bug house, returned to my pots to find a heap of compost adjacent to a drainage hole and a leafcutter bee hard at work creating a new nest. ( The hole faced South East ) A word of warning, some of my Rose Leaves and a Bonsai Sycamore are full of holes, but who cares ?
