The Bee-Friendly Garden by Kate Frey and Gretchen LeBuhn
From the publishers:
In The Bee-Friendly Garden, award-winning garden designer Kate Frey and bee expert Gretchen LeBuhn provide everything you need to know to create a dazzling garden that helps both the threatened honeybee and our own native bees. No matter how small or large your space, and regardless of whether you live in the city, suburbs, or country, just a few simple changes to your garden can fight the effects of colony collapse disorder and the worldwide decline in bee population that threatens our global food chain.
This book interested me because I have heard a lot about how bees are threatened and how it can effect us.
This book has a lot of information. So those who are looking for information--this is the book. However, it is laid out well and invites the reader to at least look at small sections if they don't have time for the bigger ones.
Inside this book the authors share the benefits to having a bee-friendly garden, and which plants are best for attracting bees. They talk about flowers as well as edible plants for your bee-friendly garden. I liked that the garden could be both aesthetics and useful.
I liked the tips to designing your own garden, because I am visual and I wanted to picture what I had learned into a reality. I found myself telling my husband about different things and showing him pictures.
I received this book free from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.
