Planting for Honeybees
Of the 25,000 known species of bee worldwide, only seven species are honeybees, and the shrinking of green spaces has placed them in danger.
Planting for Honeybees shows you how you can help these delightful pollinators to flourish by creating a habitat for them. No matter how small or large your space, from a window ledge in the city to a country garden, Sarah Wyndham Lewis offers practical advice on which plants to grow, and when and where to plant them.
A lavish full-colour guide to over 200 of the very best places to stay in the UK - everything from boutique hotels and designer B&Bs to chic country cottages and luxury glampsites. Whether you're looking for a country getaway, a seaside holiday, a family break or a romantic treat, Cool Places celebrates amazing independent businesses, and each hand-picked choice guarantees a stay to remember in the `coolest' British hotels, B&Bs, cottages, inns, pubs and glampsites.
