The beautiful, perfectly imperfect Beepot bee house and concrete planter is made by us in our Cornish studio but isn't quite finished to our normal high standards.
Sometimes concrete just doesn’t do exactly what it’s supposed to, meaning that the perfectly imperfect collection might have larger than normal air bubbles, a chip on a corner or some damage on the fascia edges. However, if you don’t mind a few imperfections then the Beepot will still look lovely in your garden, work perfectly for bee-friendly planting and, most importantly of all, will provide a safe nesting site for solitary bees for many years to come and a great way to get kids excited about the bees.
The Beepot is a bee home inspired by our award-winning Bee Brick, only this time we’ve added a place for planting!
The perfectly imperfect sale runs from Thursday 22nd August to Monday 2nd September but there are limited numbers so be quick if you want to treat yourself, in our massive online seconds sale. All products in the sale come unpackaged.
The Beepot is designed and made by Green&Blue in the UK.
Made in Cornwall from concrete, using up to 75% waste material from the Cornish China clay industry.
Imperfections vary but will not affect the performance of your Beepot.

Solitary bees are facing decline, in part due to habitat loss. By using the Beepot in your garden, allotment or urban space you are helping the bees to continue the vital pollination work they do and they are also fascinating to watch and safe to encourage around children and pets as they are non aggressive.
