Description

It is becoming more and more important to address the decline in our native bee populations, not only on a national level but also in our own back gardens and other outdoor spaces. Amateur bee keeping is one way to help bees recover their numbers, but a simpler way is to create an environment in which they can thrive.

Honey bees, bumblebees or wild bees all love a garden full of flowers. Some wild bees may even take up residence in your garden if they find nesting opportunities as well as their favourite flowers. Bee Garden offers everything you need to plant and nurture a garden that will invite these vital pollinators in, creating spaces bursting with vibrant colour and giving off heady, bee-friendly scents from the right kinds of plants. In doing so you will cultivate an environment in which beneficial insects thrive, and pests are controlled, meaning that your gardens, balconies and containers create a delightful environment for people as well as bees.

Containing a wealth of information about different bees and vibrant planting plans, Bee Garden will help you support and grow a happy garden that is buzzing with life and fruitfulness.
