The Copella Bee Garden
The Copella Bee Garden
Designer: Sadie May Stowell (Sadie May Stowell Landscape Design) / Sponsor: Copella Fruit Juices Ltd / Contractor: Landscape Associates Ltd

Copella, the UK's best-loved apple juice, pressed in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, has joined forces with award-winning landscape designer Sadie May Stowell to raise awareness of the plight of the British bee. The Copella Bee Garden is designed to attract and support honey bees, which are currently suffering a population decline. The layout takes inspiration from the rhythms of the bees 'waggle dance' and the garden reflects the journey from plant to hive. A sculptural building based on a beehive is surrounded by rolling earth banks resembling ridge and furrow patterns. Dessert apple trees and native shrubs create strong structural shapes, and a winding path weaves through the garden. A still pool echoes the curvilinear design of the seating area. The planting has been chosen to attract bees and includes herbaceous areas, a wildflower meadow and a clover lawn. Copella, which relies on bees to pollinate the apple trees from which it creates its delicious cloudy apple juice, is providing juice samples for visitors to the garden.
