5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and informative book 23 Oct 2012
By Stuart
Format:Hardcover
We were looking for guidance on what to plant to help the bees in our new cottage garden so bought 'Plants for Bees'.

It's a lovely 'sturdy' book, with lots of great illustrations. It's easy to use with handy reference to the different types of bees that one can expect in the UK - and a comprehensive plant index.

A must for any gardener that wants to encourage bees!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! 23 Oct 2012
By Louise
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book to learn about which plants to grow in my garden to help the bee population, but I have learned so much more: the first chapter explained the importance of bees and why we need them, I then read about honeybees, bumblebees and solitary bees - fascinating! So well written and easy to understand yet full of interesting facts.
The main part of the book covers the plants in alphabetical order and has an excellent little guide showing how good each plant is for which type of bee. The pictures are really stunning throughout the book and every detail, (such as the design of the hard cover)makes this a beautiful publication. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of bees and plants 30 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover
This is a great book, full of information and interesting facts. I had no idea how many types of bees we had and my garden will be planted differently in the future. The chapters are full of information and I especially liked to learn more about bumble bees as I now realise that I have regular visits from 2 different types. I recommend this for all who care about bees, whatever the type, as it can only help by ensuring that we plant for bees needs of both pollen and nectar.

5.0 out of 5 stars For anyone who loves plants and bees 21 Dec 2012
Format:Hardcover
This is a stunning book, beautifully designed and photographed, giving huge swathes of information in a really clear easy to digest format. Emphasing the needs of plants and pollinators to live together to keep our planet going and to feed us all. A must read for anyone who loves any of the above and especially if you can plants some of these bee friendly trees and flowers around you... I am a bee keeper and a gardener and will be reading this from cover to cover - what a wonderful gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on the subject 5 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you have an interest in gardening and bees, all 260 odd British native bees, not just the honey bee, then this is an invaluable resource, summarising the usefulness of a very wide range of garden and wild flowers. Clearly written, authoritative and well illustrated.
