Bees are crucial to the environment. As pollinators, they protect plants by aiding in reproduction. They are necessary for the survival of certain species, many of which we rely on for food such as almonds, apples, peaches, and berries.
By having a garden that attracts bees, you can help this endangered species stick around. The Bee Friendly Garden is a great resource to help you design a garden that will attract bees. This book is a guide to help you create a beautiful, sustainable outdoor space.
The book is easy to read and includes lots of pictures for inspiration. It is broken up by sections to teach you about different types of bees, why they are important, specific varieties to plant, and how to care for those plants, including how to manage pests without using chemicals.
This would make a great gift for an environmentalist or a novice or advanced gardener!
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
