For many people gardening is predominantly about plants and choosing the right combination and balance to make beautiful borders.

This book will help you achieve this - and more, because it will also help you create an ecologically sound, bee-friendly garden, showing that you can have an aesthetically pleasing garden full of beautiful flowers which at the same time will attract and nurture bees.

It will enable you to select bee-friendly plants, and to plan borders which are beneficial to bees, encouraging these most valuable of insects to come to your garden over and over again, both for sustenance and to aid pollination.

It contains a wide range of practical, beautiful and easy-to-follow planting plans for bee-friendly gardens of all sizes, including: - Traditional mixed, cottage, and colour themed borders -'Designer' and 'natural' borders - Borders for acid and alkaline soils - Ideas for container planting.

This book will be of interest to everyone who cares for the plight of the honeybee and other bees. It is an invaluable aid to both novice and experienced beekeeping gardeners and gardening beekeepers.

It is also a treasure-trove of ideas for garden designers, who want to plan and implement bee-friendly gardens for clients of all backgrounds.
