For a concise and colorful guide to the art of gardening and bee-saving, look no further than Kate Frey and Gretchen LeBuhn’s The Bee-Friendly Garden. Packed with vibrant photos and easily accessible information, this guide will get any gardener and bee activist fired up to start planting.
As both a gardener and bee enthusiast, I really enjoyed sitting down to read The Bee-Friendly Garden. It is loaded with tips for not only sustaining and maintaining ones garden, but it’s got the spirit of activism within its words. Bees are an important part of our natural environment, so I was pleased at the approach this guide was taking to not only inform, but to inspire gardeners to take a special interest in the dwindling bee population.
The Bee-Friendly Garden makes it easy for planters to decide what kind of bee-attracting plants work for ones own backyard. It addresses complimenting flowers, shrubs, and trees that can work together to benefit the landscape. Also handy in the guide, is a quick know-it-all course to identifying different kinds of bees their needs.
Not only is the guide well designed in its layout, its also well written. Frey and LeBuhn demonstrate that they are truly educated and passionate about their subject. They prove to be well researched and experienced.
Overall, fantastic book with plenty of information and gorgeous photography.
