Bee & Insect Houses
With the world’s bee, insect and butterfly population in serious decline, Mr Fothergill’s is focused on producing products that will help increase the bee population and keep them pollinating our crops far into the future.
How to Grow:
To use, simply hook a piece of wire into the back loop of the butterfly and insect house and attach to a tree trunk or branch or simply place amongst the garden.
Sowing your seeds:
1. Prepare the chosen area for your seeds by turning or raking the soil until you have a good crumbly consistency, removing any stones and weeds as you go.
2. Open the seed sachet and shake out the seeds thinly and evenly directly over the prepared area.
3. Gently rake over the seed bed to lightly cover the seeds.
4. Water well until the plants are established.
– Some perennial varieties may not flower until the second year.
– Once the flowers start to appear, pollinating insects and bees will soon follow, and your garden will be a hive of activity!
