Staff Reviews

This sweet book is the perfect place to learn about creating a garden with a purpose. Attract honeybees to whatever space you can carve out for them—be it a big backyard or the tiniest of Santa Cruz apartment balconies. The block print–style illustrations make this an enjoyable artsy read as well as a guide to making thousands of new insect friends.

— Megan


Of the 25,000 known species of bee worldwide, only seven species are honeybees. Bees and plants have a sophisticated and delicate symbiosis. In recent years, the shrinking of green spaces has endangered the honeybee. Now Planting for Honeybees shows you how you can help these delightful pollinators to flourish by creating a garden as habitat for them. No matter how small or large your space – from a window ledge in the city to a country garden – Sarah Wyndham Lewis offers practical advice on which plants to grow and when and where to plant them.

Charmingly illustrated with delicate drawings, this a jewel of a guide to treasure.
