"Planting for Honeybees is a no-nonsense, beautiful guide to the types of plants you can grow on windowsills, patios, gardens large and small, and even lawns (honeybees love dandelions, don't you know?)." -Foreword Reviews Sarah Wyndham Lewis and her husband, Dale Gibson, founded Bermondsey Street Bees in 2007, a beekeeping and sustainability consulting business which was awarded '2016 Small Artisan Producer of The Year' at the Great Taste Award.

By teaching herself how to garden from scratch, she has formulated her own pragmatic approach to planting. 22022018 02 RRP including tax GB GBP 12.00 0.00 12.00 This price includes a tax element GB 32 Reprinting 30062020 40 ARGOSY BERT BKSPD GARD Y Of the 25,000 known species of bee worldwide, only seven species are honeybees.
