A unique guide to the plants and trees that are excellent for all types of bees.  Most 'bee-friendly' planting guides only focus on honeybees (which make up only 10% of bee population), where as this book takes all bees into consideration, including solitary bees (such as mining, mason and leafcutter bees), which account for a majority of bee pollination (about 80% if your interested). 

Not only are the plants good for all bees, but there are varieties available on every major contintent in the world (as best as rhe research shows anyhow). 

This isn't a gardening manual, it is quite simply a guide to the best bee-friendly plants and information about the relationship between bees and plants, with a little folklore thrown in for good measure.

If you are looking to get started in creating your own bee-friendly garden, then this book is an excellent start.
