In the UK alone, the honey bee population has declined by roughly a third over the past decade. By providing honey bee habitats in your garden you can do your bit to help reverse this decline.
The Gardeners’ Beehive mimics a tree hollow, the natural nesting space of wild honey bees. If you’re interested in collecting honey, you can attach the honey box, which adds an extra space for bees to store honey away from the main reserves, which can then be harvested without impacting the health of the colony.
While the purpose of the hive is to provide an artificial habitat for honey bees and isn’t geared towards honey production, it’s recommended that the winner receive appropriate training and join a local beekeeping association.
We have one prize available to win, comprising of a Gardeners’ Beehive, including bee bio symbiotic mulch, swarm lure and one honey box, worth £300.
For more information on the Gardeners’ Beehive and how to use the honey box, please visit gardenersbeehive.com.
