Printed hand written notes interspersed with quaint line drawings keep the reader’s attention through this attractive book. Michael Duncan realised early in his beekeeping career that the honey bee is like a “sensitive litmus paper to environmental change”. In preparing the wild garden you will be providing a haven for honey bees and he advocates that saving our bees can save our sanity. The book gently offers an introduction to frame hive beekeeping with European honey bees including getting started, equipment required, management throughout the year,and honey harvesting.
