Made in City of London

"Handmade Bee and Bug Hotel with mixed Sedum and Sempervivum greenroof. These bug houses provide nest chambers for solitary bees and also give a good level of protection for over wintering insects such as lacewings and ladybirds. Ample overhang on roof keeps the bug house dry and protected. The roof is protected by a vac form moulded recycled high impact polystyrene damp proof membrane to weatherproof the box. A mix of vermiculite, peat free compost and sphagnum moss provides the growing medium for the green roof.

The greenroof is planted with a mixed selection of Sedums and succulents, mainly Sempervivum. Plants are grown by ourselves in North London. Bughouses with greenroofs are planted with rooted plug plants, bug house roofs planted for at least four weeks prior to despatch."
