“Herbs To Attract Bees” sets out to show you exactly the right herbs you can grow for the greatest benefits for you, your garden and the bees you need to keep your garden beautiful.
This simple to follow handbook, full of colour pictures, is ideal for keen and amateur gardeners, cooks, anyone who studies natural and herbal remedies and anyone who loves the smell of fresh herbs around the house. It’s particularly simple to follow for children and school groups who want to establish herb gardens and watch nature in action.
Watch your herbs flourish on balconies, window sills, path edges and around letterboxes. Just imagine the pleasure of brushing past some beautiful lavender as you walk through your garden, allotment or by your balcony if you are in a unit.
They have a fairly long flowering season, starting with Rosemary in February/March and continuing through to October.
You don't need a huge amount of space to grow a few herbs and you will get a useful crop to use for yourself, either in cooking, a remedy or cosmetic.
Under each entry is a description, cultivation tips, interesting information along with culinary, medicinal and cosmetic uses and a 'Rescue Remedy' for the herb - what to do if it looks a bit sick, how to revive it and maintain it.
As well as covering the smaller plants, “Herbs To Attract Bees” also includes a list of around 150 'bee friendly' trees, shrubs and plants if you have a larger area of land.
Are you new to gardening? Included is a Gardening Glossary - an explanation of gardening terms that we come to use as our love for the garden grows.
Plus: How to take cuttings, sow seeds, test for viability, pot on, divide and many more instructions and definitions.
This book is also perfect for anyone wanting to beatify the nature strip outside the house with something other than concrete or grass! A few herbs growing by your door will enhance your home as well your food.
And the best news? The herbs I write about are the best herbs to grow to attract bees to your garden. More bees means more pollination means better flowers, vegetables and a more secure future for this planet. So everyone wins! Yay!
It's broken down into these sections:
Herbs to Attract Bees is more than a gardening book, it shows you that no matter how little you can manage, you can do your bit to support the bee population.
Urban bees do much better than rural bees and the reason is *you* and the diverse planting in your community.
