Native bee and pollinator house

Have you got any Australian Native trees or shrubs growing in your garden that needs a prune ? If they are reasonably thick branches , chop up a branch , drill holes in them and make your own Native Bee and Pollinator House !! 🐝🐝 Get a terracotta pot and fill it up, pack it tight so nothing falls out. Before you do that, get yourself some Sisal and braid it. Thread it through the drainage hole to make your hanger. When you have finished it , hang under a shady tree or somewhere protected by the rain. Enjoy 🐝🐝

That's so great! I've been wanting to do a bee/insect home for ages but they're all so big that it has been a bit off putting. This one is nice and quick. 
Thank you for sharing.

Why not make an Australian Native Bee House and plant some Australian Native plants to encourage them into your garden πŸπŸ’›πŸ–€
