"(an) excellent illustrated guide to creating a paradise for pollinators, from the author of The Garden Jungle and A Sting in the Tale"

"Bees and other pollinators are profoundly important to our wellbeing." The vision of a summer garden full of humming bees and ripening produce is something to dream about right now. And we can make that dream a reality with this excellent illustrated guide to creating a paradise for pollinators, from the author of The Garden Jungle and A Sting in the Tale. Goulson shows us how we can create a refuge for the UK's 26 species of bumblebee with trees and shrubs, as well as bright flowering plants. Even just looking at this in the January chill brings me sunshine.
