GARDENING FOR BUTTERFLIES, BEES AND OTHER BENEFICIAL INSECTS
[BKBB]

GARDENING FOR BUTTERFLIES, BEES AND OTHER BENEFICIAL INSECTS
 £17.75 
Gardening for Butterflies, Bees and other Beneficial Insects by Jan Miller-Klein.

This beautiful book shows ordinary gardeners how to grow the best plants to encourage butterflies and bees for pollination, as well as predators to eat their vegetable pests. Insects in turn help to feed dwindling birds.

A practical dip-into, easy to use guide, with all the latest knowledge about our disappearing insects. Hundreds of full colour photos of which plants to use, how to identify butterflies, bees and ladybirds and many years of different experts’ experience.

With large colour photos and plans to copy for the reader and their children in their own garden, school and community wildlife gardens, it makes an ideal gift.

 

Praise for the book:

"I love the concept and can see you have put much work into researching for it ... the photography is excellent." - Bob Flowerdew.

"I have just finished my cover-to-cover read - and it is exquisite! On so many counts you put the stress exactly where I do in my talks, and on so many others I learned something extra about varieties, propagation and garden design." - Rob Sutton.

"I think it is great - looks good, reads well and an excellent addition to the canon on creating wildlife - well done." - Dusty Gedge.

"EXCELLENT, a fine book ... a fine addition to the wildlife gardening list." - David Henderson.

"The book is really lovely - easy to access because of the large print and clear layout, and beautiful crisp photos." - Caroline Parry.

"It really is a beautiful, well designed book ... It is bound to encourage more people to grow wildlife friendly plants in their gardens and to develop an interest in insects." - Janet Graham.

"Jan Miller is an exceedingly active volunteer with Butterfly Conservation in North Wales and a very knowledgeable horticulturalist. This book combines her interests and skills to give newcomers to gardening for butterflies etc an excellent manual. Pleasingly it does offer new ideas to old hands at butterfly gardening too, especially suggestions for moraine gardens and butterfly banks. Moths are not forgotten either with numerous references made to plants and features to help them and their caterpillars ... It is lavishly illustrated and a joy to read." - Lynn Fomison.
