Mason Bee Hotel
They make a perfect gift for your nature lover!
Boost your gardens productivity with nesting habitat for our native bees. Slightly smaller than honeybees, mason bees are peaceful and amazing pollinators with each visiting as many as 1000 blooms a day. Females search out hollow tubes to lay their eggs in and then seal them up with a wall of mud.
Our handmade houses are $40 each, 6"x6"x13" (size of a birdhouse) and available in green and blue. Supplies are limited so contact us today.
Healthy soils are alive with billions of beneficial micro-biota that help provide plants with nutrients, water, and minerals! In sufficient numbers, they continuously make soils even healthier by improving water quality, retaining nutrients, improving infiltration, cleaning air, and discouraging disease.
Here in Charleston, our sandy soils, persistent high temperatures, high humidity, and heavy seasonal rainfall causes leaching of minerals and nutrients so we aim to create conditions to hold nutrients in forms your plants can use.
Plants love insects and so should you! Some of their many services include pollination, feeding birds and other wildlife, breaking down dead things, and aerating the soil! While some insects feed on plants, others are predators and in healthy spaces, they keep pest populations in check. Keep your eyes open for the garden good guys including ladybugs, dragonflies, wasps, bees, butterflies, assassin bugs, dung beetles, and robber flies.
Your yard is dependent upon the interactions of everything within. In this complex living system, small changes can lead to BIG results. With this in mind, we emphasize diversity and functionality of your plants in order to get the most productivity out of your yard.
Picture a yard filled with native flowers and buzzing with bees, birds, and butterflies. Pluck some fruit on the way from your car to your door!
