    Hi there,

    I have an extensive garden here in Calgary, and am taking a honey bee keeping course in April. I also wanted to know if I could take care of mason bees in my garden, or is Calgary too cold? I do have a cedar shed in the garden that is very warm from spring to fall, and I could set up a home for mason bees in there also.
    Thanks for your guidance.
    Kindest regards,

      Yes, you can take care of mason bees along with your honey bees. Your shed is a great place to overwinter mason bees.

    Greetings , I just purchased a highrise kits, love it, great idea.
    ? are you going to make something that i can harvest honey with ?


    • margriet says:

      Mason bees use all nectar and pollen for producing their offspring- so no left-over honey for us.

    I am new to small space or city gardening and finding out the hard way that I was not prepared. Having grownup on a 260 acre farm pollination and such came natural. It is now July . . . I have read some on your website, but would you give me a step by step quide as to how to start this process. Since sume would I order Summer bees and do they come as a cocoon or actual bees. If preparing for next year I guess I would get spring cocoons and set them out in the spring. Please help . . . Thanks so much.

    Hi! I am interested and excited in getting some bees! I am a urban-homesteader with a large native-perennial gardens and vegetable gardens too! Which variety of bee do you think better suited to our yard? The leafcutter or mason? I am in Southern Ontario (London), Im sure we’d have to wait until next spring for masons, what about leaf cutters? Looking for some beginners advice! THANKS :)

      Hi, A perennial garden is a boon for all kinds of pollinators. The larger early spring mason bee (Osmia lignaria) pollinates fruit trees and as these flowers diminish in number, bees continue visiting perennial flowers. In the summer, leafcutter bees do well in gardens because they need at least 20C to fly. Either start off with a mason bee house with mason bees, or a summer house for summer pollinators such as leafcutter bees and smaller summer mason bees. Mason bees can be ordered now for delivery in November. Margriet
