Perfectly imperfect Small Bee Blocks are made in our Cornish studio, but they're not finished to our usual 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 or a chip on the corner, but if you don’t mind a few imperfections they will still look lovely in your garden, work perfectly built into a wall 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 perfectly imperfect seconds’ sale is a great opportunity to grab yourself a little something for the garden with up to 60% off our normal price. Your Small Bee Block will come without packaging, ready to be placed in your outside space and to help the pollinators in your garden, or to make a great little gift for someone who loves their bees too!
The perfectly imperfect sale runs from Thursday 23rd August to Monday 2nd September but with limited numbers, you're going to want to get your order in quick!
The Small Bee Block 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 Bee Block.

The Small Bee Block™ should be positioned in a warm sunny spot, south facing, with no vegetation in front of the fascia. Ideally placed at least 1 metre from the ground with no upward limit.
Bee Blocks are solid at the back and have moulded cavities where the 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 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 Small Bee Block 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.
