Bee Gardens: Flowers, Fruits and Herbs for a Bee-Friendly Habitat
You can provide resident honeybees and other pollinators with year-round nourishment — even in urban areas — by planting flowers, fruits and herbs that are rich in nectar and pollen.
An estimated 70 percent of the food we eat is dependent upon pollination by insects such as bees. You can help support these vital, fascinating creatures by learning how to raise them yourself! Whether you want to keep bees for pleasure or profit, in the city or in a rural area, “Keeping Bees and Making Honey” can guide you every step of the way, from where to place your hive all the way up to how to best savor your first spot of “homegrown” honey.
