Crocheted Bees

This year we created a flight of brand new crocheted bees to add into our giant flowers. The subject of the preservation of the bees is very close to our hearts and we wanted to recognise the important role that bees play in our world by adding them to our gardens.

Our giant bees are crocheted using 8 threads of yarn and a giant crochet hook. They are wired to the flowers so as to bob and move in the breeze so that they appear to be buzzing around the flowers collecting pollen.

The bees have proved a huge hit and have really brought the gardens to life. Watch this space for new giant insects…
