The Perfectly Imperfect Bee Cell is designed and made by Green&Blue in the UK. The perfectly imperfect range consists of seconds from our workshop that will look great in your garden and will provide a nesting place for bees, they're great but they're just not quite perfect!
Perfectly imperfect Bee Cell seconds are made with the same care and attention as normal but sometimes concrete doesn't do exactly as it's supposed to, meaning that the perfectly imperfect collection isn't finished to our usual high standards. There might be a larger than normal air bubble or a chip on the corner, but if you don't mind a few imperfections they will still look stunning placed in your garden and, most importantly of all, will provide a safe nesting site for solitary bees for many years to come.
The perfectly imperfect seconds' sale is a great opportunity to grab yourself a little something for the garden at over 50% off our normal price. Your Bee Cell will come without its normal packaging, ready to be placed in your outside space, and to help the solitary bees in your garden. When perfectly imperfect stock is gone it's gone so be quick.
The Bee Cell is a simple and stylish way to do something to help our declining bee population and looks great placed in the garden or popped into a wall or hedge.

The Bee Cell should be positioned in a warm sunny spot, ideally south-facing and with no vegetation in front of the fascia. Ideally placed at least 1/2 a metre from the ground with no upward limit.
Bee Cells are solid at the back and are a moulded cavity where solitary bees will lay their eggs, sealing the entrance with mud or chewed up vegetation. Offspring emerge in the Spring and begin the process of nesting again, repeating the cycle.
Solitary bees are facing a dramatic decline in numbers due to disease, an increase in chemical use, and habitat loss. Pollinators account for 1/3 of the food we eat and are a vital part of our environment. The Green&Blue range can be used in urban spaces and places where there may not be alternative nesting sites for bees, either built into a wall or building or simply stood alone in a garden or allotment. Solitary bees are harmless and will not sting you unless you handle them roughly, even then their stings are not painful, meaning they are safe to encourage around pets and children.
