Praise

“Most people don’t understand the need to plant for pollinators to achieve productive vegetable gardens, or that pollination and beauty go together. This book underlines the importance and possibilities of flower-filled gardens that address our needs and create lovely and productive spaces around our homes.”
—Rosalind Creasy, author of Edible Landscaping

“What a delightful, necessary book! The authors deliver its important mission—encouraging bee gardening—simply, graciously, and thoroughly. Find inspiration here, and the tools to reconnect the land you steward with the web of life. Bee happy!”
—Lauren Springer Ogden, garden designer, author of The Undaunted Garden, and coauthor of Plant-Driven Design and Waterwise Plants for Sustainable Gardens

“This book will make bees happy and healthy in gardens across the country.”
—Laurie Davies Adams, executive director of Pollinator Partnership
