This review is from: The Bee Garden: How to Create or Adapt a Garden To Attract and Nurture Bees (Paperback)
This book is excellent! It offers both a good read and can be used as a reference book. I could not resist reading it cover to cover as soon as it arrived and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The author's writing is informative as well as being witty and she clearly has a fabulous knowledge of what the bees really need when they visit your garden and how they view your garden. Not just in the summer...lots of information about plants and flowers that will help by offering the early pollen which is essential in the early months and provide nectar for bees right through the seasons. The book gives lots of advice about gardening, so it would also be useful for a beginner gardener as well as the more experienced. The photography is beautiful. The information about bees is fascinating, predominantly referring to Honeybees, but other bees and insects are included and photographed which has helped me identify who is who in my own garden. There are planning ideas for herb gardens which I would like to have had more of but it does not detract from the book at all as there is plenty of information about herbs. The book is very well laid out,printed on good quality paper and a pleasure to read.I have recommended it to many friends who have also bought copies. It would make a great present as the book is a good size too. Very highly recommended!
