The volume is a brief guide to one hundred plants significant to honeybees. Photographs are taken by the author during his work with apiaries in the Midland Counties. Each plant is described under the headings: Plant family; Common name; Latin name; Description; Pollen; Nectar; Other names; Leaves; Flowers. An essential guide, for both beekeepers and gardeners, to pollen and nectar sources – and the very best way to care for honeybees.
