Make a bee hotel

All you need are some bamboo canes, a saw and some string, and you can make a bee hotel to encourage pollinators into your garden.

Bees will use it to nest in during the spring, and for the rest of the year spiders and other bugs will be able to have a stay in the hotel too!

Cut the bamboo canes into 10-20cm pieces; tie the canes together in a bundle; hang in a sunny but sheltered part of your garden at around 5ft above the ground.
