Maureen Little publishes "The Bee Garden"

Little says a third of all we eat depends on the honey bee for pollination and the rapid reduction in the number of bees worldwide could yet have a significant, adverse impact on global food production. If every windowsill in the UK had a terracotta pot with a bee friendly plant in it, that would form a huge resource for bumble and honey bees.

In The Bee Garden, gardener and beekeeper Maureen Little shows that everyone can do something to help bees thrive, whatever the size of their garden and however little time they have.

This beautiful, accessible handbook for experienced and novice gardeners alike is organised by season, and includes a detailed and comprehensive list of garden plants that will attract bees.  It provides ready-to-use, illustrated planting plans and instructions that will transform even the smallest of gardening spaces into a long-term haven for bees.

Little is a professional garden designer and beekeeper and has written widely on her subject, including an article on bees and herbs published in Herbs, the journal of The Herb Society.
