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.
