Beschreibung

Bees are vital for the future of the planet, for without their dedicated pollinating skills many crops would eventually fail. This delightfully illustrated book is a homage to bees, revealing many facets of their lives, including homes, flight patterns and defence. It also describes how to attract bees to your garden. The lives of bees are interwoven with our own, but how much do you know about them? Which scents and colours do bees prefer? Do bees prefer native flowers? This book is dedicated to bees and to ensuring that they continue to live in harmony with humans in bee-friendly gardens.

Autorentext

David Squire has a lifetime's experience with plants. He studied botany and gardening at the Hertfordshire College of Horticulture and at the Royal Horticultural Society's Garden as Wisley, Surrey, where he gained the Wisley Diploma in Horticulture. He also was awarded an N.K. Gould Memorial Prize for his collection of herbarium specimens of native British plants. In 2005, this collection of plants was accepted by the Booth Museum of Natural History, Brighton, Sussex, to become part of the library and museum exhibits of Brighton and Hove. David's passionate interest in native plants ranges from eating and survival to their historical roles in medicine, folklore and customs. His interest in honey bees dates back to late school years when he kept bees. Throughout his gardening and journalist career, David has written more than eighty books on plants, gardening and insects, as well as dogs and self-sufficiency, including keeping chickens. David's books have been sold in twenty countries and The Scented Garden won the Garden Writer's of America 'Quill and Trowel' award.
