Feed the bees, feed the planet. Pollinators are vital to our eco-system and bees are a major player and honey bees provide us with a luscious food.
Urban bees are thriving in a way that rural bees aren't and one of the reasons for that, is the diversity of the planting.

Liz shows you how to preserve the herbs for winter use, make cosmetics and remedies. All with gorgeous step by step photographs.
For those with a bigger plot, there are over 150 plants described in addition which will feed the bees, arranged by season. Trees, shrubs, annuals, climbers. Many of them are evergreen which will give you a good framework for your garden.
A comprehensive Gardener's Dictionary gives the basics of getting started and looking after your plot, explaining all those terms that gardeners bandy about between each other that newbies may not understand.
You do not need to know anything about gardening to feed bees, all you need is in this book.
