About this book

With this personal and informative primer, Susan Brackney opens the beehive to reveal the inner life of these unsung heroes of the food chain. At a time when their continued existence is threatened, Brackney's guide is an enthusiastic exploration that will set your mind buzzing. Overtaxed and under-recognised, the humble bee finally gets her due in this engaging, fascinating and expertly-written guided tour of the world of bees.

Apiarist and nature writer Susan Brackney is passionate about bees - how they live, work and think, as well as what they can teach us. Discover why honeybees are disappearing and what we can do about it; the beekeeper's trade and its fantastic benefits (honey, pollen, wax, royal jelly and mead); and, gardening tips to attract and support honeybees. "Plan Bee" will appeal to anyone who's ever been curious about the mysterious and always-buzzing world of bees.
