This book breaks new ground, 28 May 2011
For the first time here is a book gives gardeners a really comprehensive source of ideas and inspiration covering all kinds of pollinating insects, including various kinds of wild bees. It is not about honeybees or bee-keeping, but that subject already has a lot written about it. Miller-Klein's work breaks new ground by considering how gardeners can help bumblebees and other kinds of wild bees, as well as butterflies, moths, hoverflies and other insects. It is beautifully illustrated and has contributions from several other wildlife gardeners and photographers. This subject is at the cutting edge of modern horticulture and Miller-Klein has caught the mood of the moment.
