The Bee-Kind Garden: Apian Wisdom for Your Garden

by David Squire - £9.99  Green Books (2011)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780857840240 | ISBN 10: 085784024x

Bees are vital for the future of the planet, for without their dedicated pollinating skills many crops would eventually fail. This delightfully illustrated book is a homage to bees, revealing many facets of their lives, including homes, flight patterns and defence. It also describes how to attract bees to your garden and, essentially, the art of talking to them!
 
The lives of bees are interwoven with our own, but how much do you know about them?
 
* Which scents do bees prefer?
* How do bees transport pollen?
* How far can bees fly?
* Do specific colours attract bees?
* Do bees prefer native flowers?
 
Then there is honey a near-miraculous elixir that in earlier generations was an integral part of life as a sweetener and food preserver. It can be fermented with water and yeast to create mead, a drink that has been enjoyed for thousands of years.
 
This book is dedicated to bees and to ensuring that they continue to live in harmony with humans in bee-friendly gardens.
