Travis and I have a dream that one day we will reach adulthood’s final test and own our own home. And one of the things we have decided we actively want is a bee hive, in fact we already own a Flow Honey Hive without the bees of course. I dream of a huge garden with vegetables, fruits and flowers for our bees and for us to enjoy fresh food each day…but I am no green thumb. Not yet.
So, what is a bee friendly garden…well the book introduces the bee species to you, incase you don’t know what they are and how they pollinate. Then it gets into the plants for your very own bee friendly garden by annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees as well as edibles. It goes on to list garden basics and what to look for when selecting plant varieties. Some plants are not attractive to bees…big leaf hydrangeas for example.
My favorite thing about this book is it lists all the plants by region, and hardiness in the back so you can know EXACTLY what to go look for when heading to your local nursery.
One day, I look forward to having a home, a garden and my very own set of bees to pollinate our garden and supply us with our very own honey stash! Until then I have a small potted vegetable garden on my apartment patio with romain lettuce, celery, basil, mint and green onions.
