I can't believe I forgot to mention this the other day. Along with the veg and the plants I received another gift, from my brother via my parents.
My brother moved in with his girlfriend last year and he's spent a lot of time getting the place sorted, especially the garden - it was overgrown and overrun with the dreaded Japanese Knotweed. He planned to use the shed as his home gym and set about clearing it out when he found these
A dozen or so insect hotels! Father added the pinecones (found on the ground) and drilled the canes (of which he has many) to fill the gaps and there we have it, another lovely freebie. No-one knows how long they'd been in the shed as my brother's girlfriend has lived there for a fair few years.
I just need a place for it.
