Peter Lindtner is an accomplished horticulturist and beekeeper, originally from Czechoslovakia, where he first began following his dreams. He has extensively studied at Rehor Mendel University of Agriculture and Forestry, Purdue University and the University of Delaware. Currently and throughout his career, Peter has given many lectures and presented his photography to various audiences including students in the Academy of Lifelong Learning at the University of Delaware, local garden clubs and various beekeepers associations. His love of photography and microscoping has greatly assisted him with his studies and culminated in the compilation of this book. This is Peter's way of sharing, educating and illustrating the benefits of planting nectar- and pollen-rich plants while mutually benefitting honey bees with their pollination services and honey production.Review:
The book all beekeepers and gardeners have been waiting for. --Dr. Deborah Delaney of the University of Delaware
