Discount retail chain Home Bargains has restocked its popular bee-themed homeware range, and it’s already flying off the shelves.
Spotted by shoppers and shared with over 1.7 million members of the ever-popular Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook, the ‘Botanical Discovery’ collection is full of bee-themed accessories that are the perfect fit for any Manc home, giving you the chance to represent our proud city in style.
The worker bee has been a Manchester emblem for over 150 years.
Bees denote Mancunians’ hard work ethic, a sense of unity and our great city being “a hive of activity”.
The bee emblem has been dotted around the city a lot over the last few years – and now you can carry that theme through to your home.
Mostly featuring tiny little bees stamped across each item, the Botanical Discovery collection – which is said to have first hit stores back in 2019 – is now a part of Home Bargains’ popular ‘Star Buy’ range, and is stocked with various homeware pieces including vases, jugs, candles, mugs, melamine picnic plates, bowls, beakers and water bottles, and so much more.
Several garden accessories – including chair cushions and door stops – have also been spotted, and prices are said to start from as little as £1.29.
If you are planning on heading to Home Bargains to grab some items from the collection to sit proudly in your Manc home, then you can check the opening times of your local branch via the Store Locator here.

Commentator Arlo White shows off what the Old Trafford gantry walk looks like
Ever wondered what it’s like to be up in the gantry in a football stadium, say, Old Trafford? Well, we certainly have.
You see the odd shot of the commentators sat there on the telly from time to time but it never really gives much away either and, at some venues, it’s quite a ways up there. There’s a little bit of allure behind these mysterious parts of footy grounds that most fans will never get to see.
After hours of mindless scrolling on the social media app, we stumbled across the well-known sports commentator‘s channel where he’s been showing off what it’s like to go in the gantry and one of them is his long walk to crow’s nest up at the Theatre of Dreams.
As it turns out, Arlo’s been doing these videos for a couple of years now, revealing how the gantry looks not only at Old Trafford but other big Premier League grounds too, such as down the road at the Etihad, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Tottenham Hotspurs’ sparkly new ground and many more.
Another reason we found ourselves stuck on his TikTok for so long was also because of the other behind-the-scenes details he reveals too, even shedding light on how he prepares for games: note-taking, data sheets, how keeps himself warm up there during those cold nights on comms and so on.
