"Our native bee population is under threat. This book offers a clear and practical guide to how anyone can create a bee-friendly garden. A wonderful and hugely important book." Kate Humble, BBC TV.
'Packed full of beautifully colourful images and written by experts, this book provides a wealth of knowledge for gardeners and beekeepers and all those wishing to do their bit to help all species of bees'. Norman Sellers, Wildlife World.
'All beekeepers should consider having this book. Our bees often suffer because of a lack of variety in their diets and the chapters, written by many distinguished authors, are an informative guide to plants useful to all bees. It builds on the work by Frank Howes many years ago but has now been brought right up-to-date and is beautifully illustrated. I recommend this book to all those who are interested in helping bees whose vital work in pollination is a key element in our environment.' Dr Ivor Davis NDB, Past President of BBKA.
