Hello.
We’re Blossom & Nectar, Beekeepers.
Promoting all things bee by educating on how to create a pollinator friendly environment. Making us and the bees happier and healthy Leading the chemical free, zero waste way of life. 
 
Our hives are in sustainable apiaries and we put our bees first. We never over harvest and that makes a happier bee with better produce. We only use welsh local superfood bee produce, keeping the quality of our products to the highest standard. 
Our products are tested and certified. 

90% of our labels are made from seedpaper which is made from sustainable plants and the seeds for flowers that bees love to pollinate and have high levels of nectar to make great honey.

Our wax is made from sustainable welsh wax and the bees are free to fly where they want to gather nectar & pollen.

Our Fabric Wax wraps are made from British organic hemp. Unlike cotton, hemp grows without the need for pesticides or herbicides ,so doesn’t kill the bees. Using 20% of the water needed to grow cotton it is also more environmentally and more sustainable than many other crops. Hemp is antibacterial, breathable, strong and & durable.
How we began.  We had bees when I was younger on a city farm in Cardiff and I always wanted them again but I just didn’t have the time. Fast forward 35 years,  of being in a high level corporate job, raising a family and then setting up a business with my Father. In 2016 my Father was diagnosed with terminal throat cancer. My life changed dramatically and I took some time off to care for him.  We researched the health benefits of using local honey and beeswax. I found being around the bees in the hospice gardens more and more relaxing and started drawing them. The more I researched and learnt, I discovered beekeeping is great for anxiety, something I have developed after my father had passed away.

 

 

I joined the British Beekeepers society and took some courses, I loved it. I studied the health benefits of beekeeping, using bee products from the hive and also creating a chemical free pollen and nectar rich garden. My partner and the other half of this little bee business Andrew has allergies and nasal polyps. We found cleaning products and scented candles aggravated his health and he struggled to breath. So created some pure beeswax candles to help him and they worked a treat. Now we concentrate on the natural superfood created in the hive to develop wellness products that keep us and the bees super happy and healthy.  


Our bouquets are all seasonal British locally farmed and grown with out pesticides or neonicotiniods. Pollinated by bees in a safe chemical free environment. 

All of our packaging is single use plastic free, recycled and recyclable. We keep to local producers making our carbon footprint low. We feel strongly about sustainability both in our apiaries and our packaging. We are zero waste whenever possible.
