The Bee-Friendly Garden

The weather has turned warmer here on the Oregon Coast. In fact,  we have had a few days that have been summer-hot. Nothing turns my mind towards the garden like those first warm days of spring. It slowly overtakes all my thoughts and soon I have trays of seedlings in every window and plants shoved in every corner of the garden.

Naturally, this was the perfect time to pick up The Bee-Friendly Garden by Kate Frey and Gretchen LeBuhn. Kate is an amazing garden designer and Gretchen a bee expert. They are the perfect team to write this book!

This book shares how tweaking your garden in a few ways can vastly benefit the bees. Not only can you help save the bees, but a bee friendly garden is a beautiful garden as well. Some of the benefits of a bee-friendly garden include-

· contain a gorgeous variety of flowers
· bloom continuously throughout the seasons
· are organic, pesticide-free, and ecologically sustainable
· develop healthy and fertile soil
· attract birds, butterflies, and other beneficial insects
· increase the quantity of your fruit and vegetable harvest
· improve the quality, flavor, and size of your produce

The book itself is seriously gorgeous and a pleasure to flip through. The pictures really inspired me and gave me a vision of what my garden could look like. I love the idea of adding a few bee-friendly flowers to attract pollinators to my veggies.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
