The Complete and Easy Guide to Beekeeping helps to make the time-honoured and complex tradition of beekeeping an enjoyable and accessible pastime that will appeal to gardeners, crafters and cooks everywhere. More than a guide to beekeeping, it is a handbook for harvesting the products of a beehive, a honey cookbook and more.
