Helping Solitary Bees with a Bee Hotel

One of the biggest problems facing bees today is the lack of places for them to hibernate over the winter months.  In this day and age of having really tidy gardens many of the spaces available to bees have been removed, such as old wood piles, bamboo canes and old woody flower stems.
Here at Ashe Warren Farm we have just installed a Bee Hotel right next to the wildflower meadow that you can see in our time-lapse video on the website.
This is the best way to ensure that solitary bees and of course other hibernating insects that are beneficial to pollination of flowers have somewhere to sleep the winter months away in safety.
