Many of the most pleasing designs are found in nature, and the beehive is no exception, a fact that was not lost on the ancient Greeks. Our Beehive Pots draw on nature and classical aesthetics for their inspiration and echo the style of pot found in the Gardens at Highgrove.
Fashioned by Cretan potters using techniques artisan skills passed down the generations, the firing process produces a natural patina that sets them apart. Made from the finest clay, the pots are frost-resistant and available in four sizes, adding sculptural form or a beautiful focal point to any garden.
Our Beehive Water Feature is crafted in a classical style by Cretan potters using ancient techniques; a truly beautiful centrepiece or focal point that will bring you joy every time you step outside to enjoy your garden. The water feature comes with everything you need for installation, complete with a reservoir and grill, pump, pipework, and sealing.
Delivery Lead Time & Costs

Please read the delivery information below for next steps after your payment is complete.
- All large pots will be delivered on a pallet
- Deliveries are made any time between 9 and 5 p.m. If the pallet company, or its agent, cannot gain access to the delivery address, then additional costs may be incurred. Deliveries are made using large vehicles, and the customer must inform us if there may be an access problem. Delivery vehicles use tail lift offloading, and it must be emphasised that the delivery vehicle must be able to park in an area where the delivery is to be made. A pallet trolley is then used to manoeuvre the pot off the tail lift, and this cannot be done on gravel, uneven or soft surfaces. The delivery driver is not insured to unpack or place items in situ.

- If unable to unpack on delivery, please write “unchecked” against your signature; otherwise, a damage claim will not be considered.
