by Peter Lindtner
Garden Plants for Honey Bees by Peter Lindtner is the culmination of a lifetime of photography, beekeeping, and horticulture. With each plant accompanied by a simple pollen and nectar production rating guide derived from his careful observations, this photo-rich guide can help you identify your most bee-friendly plants, add more to your landscaping and even plot a season-long supply of bee-preferred nectar and pollen producers in your own backyard. It contains over 750 distinct photos and scanning electron micrographs of pollen grains. Dr. Deborah Delaney of the University of Delaware describes Garden Plants for Honey Bees as the book that "all beekeepers and gardeners have been waiting for”.
Suitable for the coffee table, this 398 page, 6 inch by 9 inch resource guide will also serve as a field handbook for both disciplines. Combining beauty and function, bee health and biodiversity come together in this colorful new hardcover from Wicwas Press! Priced at $34 and includes domestic shipping.
