Bees play a vital and irreplaceable role in pollinating our flowers, fruits and vegetables. The more bees in your garden the healthier, more productive and pleasant a place it will be.

Yet bees are declining rapidly and many people, even if they do not wish to keep bees themselves, are asking what can be done on an individual basis to help the bee. This book is a response to that request. It will demonstrate in one accessible volume how each of us can play our part in providing a bee-friendly environment, no matter how much gardening space and/or time we may have.

It includes:

How bees forage, what bees you can expect to find in your garden and what plants are best for them.

Why honey bees are so important: what they need to thrive and how they detect and access those requirements: and what varieties of plants are best suited to provide those needs.

How the gardener can offer and maintain a bee-friendly garden, followed by a season-by-season account of what bee-friendly plants are in flower and when, and what jobs the gardener can be doing during these times to help bees thrive.

A 'gazetteer' of selected bee-friendly plants, arranged by type of plant in seasonal sub-sections.

Illustrative, practical planting plans, including a culinary herb garden, a potager, a wild flower garden, and a '3 seasons' traditional border
