By Charlotte Milner. The Bee Book shows step-by-step how to create a bee-friendly garden, get started in beekeeping, and harness the power of honey for well-being. Illustrated with full-colour photographs throughout, this beautiful guide covers everything needed to start a backyard hive, from setup to harvest. Practical beekeeping techniques are explained with clear step-by-step sequences, photos, and diagrams. A comprehensive gardening chapter features planting plans to fill container and border gardens, bee "hotel" and habitat projects, and an at-a-glance flower gallery of bees' favorite plants. The Bee Book also shows you how to harvest honey, beeswax, and propolis from the hive and use these ingredients in 38 recipes for home remedies, beauty treatments, and candle-making.
