Hi Lilylouise, those bees in your nest box are probably tree bees. Gary Hobson posted some good pictures of them on this thread. They nested under my roof tiles a couple of years ago and moved on late in the summer.

Thankyou Daintiness  I have just googled and it does look like we have Tree Bees in our nest box - I wondered why there seems to be a Bee 'dancing' around the nest box hole

Akebia quinata  and Trachelospermum are lovely climbers - they both do well in our garden

I love seeing all your photos - thankyou 

The Blue Tits didn't use the nest box at the front of the house this year but some Bumble Bees are using it instead

Good Customer Service!

Sorry about all that - I will try again

<span style="font-size: x-small;">I love my Basil plants and cannot be without my African Blue or Pesto PerpetuoI have mastered taking cuttings of the African Blue but not the Pesto Perpetuo which is supposed(I don't think so!) to be a perennial.
The only place I could find them online in the UK was Norfolk Herbs so I placed an order for 2 plants and a Stevia.A couple of days later I had an email to say they were very sorry but my order was 5 plants short of their minimum order I don't really need more herbs What would I like to do - order more plants ? refund? I phoned and spoke to a lovely man who said how sorry he was but the reason they made a minimum order was to do with the packing - with the size of boxes used it is better to fill them or plants would be chucked around something awful!
I told him how disappointed I was as the plants are hard to find so he said he would send them anyway and if anything happened to them it would be their loss. The plants arrived today - so well packed and beautiful plants for £1.99 each I phoned Norfolk Herbs as soon as I had unpacked the plants to say a big Thankyou for the trouble they had taken First Class customer service If I ever need herbs again I know who I will give my business to
