It is widely known that our bee population is under threat and that honeybees, bumblebees and solitary bees are all in decline. Our own population growth directly impacts that of the bee as intensive agriculture and development for housing decimates the bees' natural habitats.

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.
