"The Section on `How to Identify Butterflies' is really one of the best I've seen, as someone who is vaguely interested in this area, and the section on Bees was also amazing – I had no idea about the diversity here! Not really being much of a gardener (and that's something of an understatement!), I'm sure that some of the finer points about the design and lay-out will have passed me by – but the combination of excellent design and very practical advice is a sure winner. Amazing piece of work."
– Jonathon Porritt

"This is an excellent book from garden designer, writer and passionate Butterfly Conservation volunteer Jan Miller- Klein. It starts in familiar territory, with profiles on plants that are particularly good for butterflies through the seasons of the year, but then moves on to more. Much more. There are informative sections on bees, beetles and other beneficial insects, which provide identification tips as well as detailing the ecological roles played by these creatures and a myriad of ways to encourage them into your garden. There is, of course, lots of information about butterflies and moths, the habitats and resources they require and how to cater for them in your garden. For the more adventurous gardeners there are sections about creating butterfly banks, green roofs, flowering lawns and the brilliantly-titled `water-creaturefeature'. And, perhaps, most useful of all, are the numerous garden designs for readers to copy or adapt. These suggest colourful and beneficial planting schemes for plots of all sizes from patio containers to school grounds. The book is large format and wonderfully illustrated in colour. It's a practical guide, but also a fascinating collection of facts, anecdotes, advice from experts and case studies."
– Richard Fox, Senior project officer, Butterfly Conservation
