Bees are vital for the future of the planet; without their dedicated pollinating many crops would eventually fail. This delightfully illustrated book reveals many facets of their lives, including homes, flight patterns, and defense. It also describes how to attract bees to your garden. 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 colors 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. The Bee-Kind Garden provides fascinating snippets of poetry and history, showing how the bee is entwined with our history and culture; it is dedicated to bees and to ensuring that they continue to live in harmony with humans in bee-friendly gardens.

About the Author:

David Squire is a horticulturist and the author of more than 70 gardening and plant-related books. He studied botany and gardening at the Hertfordshire College of Horticulture and at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Garden at Wisley, Surrey. He has received the Garden Writer’s of America Quill and Trowel Award and was also awarded an N. K. Gould Memorial Prize for his collection of herbarium specimens of native British plants; a collection which is now part of the Booth Museum of Natural History in Brighton.

Review:

"A charming little book for anyone who wants a gentle introduction to the world of honeybees, with a surprising amount of useful information about gardening for bees." -- Ken Thompson, author of No Nettles Required "It is a true feast for the eye and a beautiful stocking filler for anyone interested about bees, their remarkable story and the relationship humans have long had with them " * Postive News - October 2011 * "The Bee-Kind Garden is a sweet, illustrated book. The information it contains is in nugget-sized chunks and it does not go too in-depth for the bee novice. It certainly illustrates that there is a lot more to bee keeping then just getting their honey!" * Wildlife Trust - Birmingham * "This book is a godsend to anyone who is stumped about what to buy a beekeeper for a birthday or Christmas present." * The Honey Press *
