About this book

Of the 25,000 known species of bee worldwide, only seven species are honeybees. Bees and plants have a sophisticated and delicate symbiosis. In recent years, the shrinking of green spaces has endangered the honeybee. Now Planting for Honeybees shows you how you can help these delightful pollinators to flourish by creating a garden as a habitat for them. No matter how small or large your space from a window ledge in the city to a country garden Sarah Wyndham Lewis offers practical advice on which plants to grow, and when and where to plant them.

Biography

Sarah Wyndham Lewis and her husband, Dale Gibson, founded Bermondsey Street Bees in 2007, a beekeeping and sustainability consulting business which was awarded `2016 Small Artisan Producer of The Year' at the Great Taste Award. The advent of bees in her life prompted her to transform a small, neglected patch in Suffolk into a test-bed for bee plantings. By teaching herself how to garden from scratch, she has formulated her own pragmatic approach to planting.
