As a part of my book series, the book I will be reviewing today is The Bee-Friendly Garden by Kate Frey and Gretchen LeBuhn. I have had my own garden for a few years now and really enjoy picking new plants for my garden depending the seasons. I love to have pumpkins and zucchini in the fall but I noticed that I wouldn’t have as many veggies as I liked. Slowly I realized it was because not many bees visited my garden. Bees are vital in pollinating the plants to create the veggies I wanted. I started to get interested in plants that would attract bees to my garden – enter The Bee-Friendly Garden! This book is great in giving the reader lots of details for creating the prefect garden that a variety of bess will love! The beginning of the book gives you an introduction about bees and then goes into further detail about the different kinds of bees you can encounter depending on the area you live, how they look, how they gather pollen, etc. I really enjoy learning about the different types of bees I may encounter in my own garden and found this section to be really informative and helpful. The next part of the book is about what plants are good at attracting bees to your garden. I love that the book goes into a lot of detail about the way the plants grow and which plants are good for different regions of the US! The book also gives you hints on how to design your garden which is nice. I really like this book and enjoy how informative it is and filled with many pictures. This is a great book for someone how loves bees or wants their garden to flourish, or both! Definitely check out this book!
