These plantable bee hexagons have been hand crafted using British milled paper embedded 24 varieties of native British wildflowers all classified as 'perfect for pollinators' by the Royal Horticultural Society.
When the bee hexagons are planted, the paper will compost away to leave only flowers. A mix of annuals to provide first year colour, as well as perennials, which will flower from year two.
The hexagons can be potted indoors, and when the season is right and the seedlings established, transferred directly into the garden soil.
Each 55mm diameter hexagon features one little bee, hand drawn by me and printed in eco-friendly ink.
The hexagons are available in packs of 10, 20 and 50, and each pack includes a variety of the three bee illustrations shown in the images.
The hexagons come packaged in a compostable bag and include a set of planting instructions, printed onto recycled card of course.
