Here’s a unique way bring a beekeeping theme into your home garden. Make a Bee Hive Planter.
It’s made using a standard bottom board, deep super and a medium super. The cap is built to resemble a conventional hive cover. The open center allows access to one or more potted plants which sit on a shelf.
This one is made from “retired” equipment and serves as the base of the sign for our Roadside Honey Stand.

If you’re not a beekeeper you can find the supers (boxes) at any beekeeping supply store or better yet, make the boxes using our FREE Honey Supers and Hive Bodies Plans. Pine or cedar can be used for the other components.
