Our gardens are therefore fast-becoming an alternative home for many of our bee species and for our native bees to survive and thrive these spaces are crucial. In this fascinating book, Dr William Kirk and Dr Frank Howes explain the importance of planting flowers for both long- and short-tongued bee species and sets out clearly which plants benefit which type. A simple key system allows gardeners to quickly identify the advantages of more than 300 plants for each type of bee and the information is punctuated by stunning photography.

Supported by contributions from leading experts in the field Plants For Bees is not just an information resource, it is also a practical handbook and a beautiful collection for anyone interested in bees and the valuable contribution they make to our lives.
