Product Description

A grower's handbook to attracting bees and other beneficial insects.

Bees are our most important pollinators and they are in decline the world over. They love to live in urban environments, where it's a short flight path from one type of plant to the next. But conventional gardens that favour lawns and pesticides over flowers and edible plants are scaring the good bugs away.

The Bee Friendly Garden is a guide for all gardeners great and small to encouraging bees and other good bugs to your green space.

Includes: - How bees forage and why your garden needs them - A comprehensive plant guide to bee friendly plants - Simple changes anybody can make - Ideas for gardens of all sizes - Natural pest control and companion planting advice

          Comments about The Bee Friendly Garden:

          The title is self explanatory and the author is renowned in his knowledge of Bees. I bought this book as a conjunct to Doug Purdie's book Backyard Bees. The Bee Friendly Garden is a tremendous reference book for what to plant to bring bees to your garden to help with pollination of vegetables and fruit trees etc. but most of all I find it invaluable to maintain pests with non toxic remedies. A fabulous book. Highly recommend.
