This vintage book contains a detailed guide to the wild and cultivated plants that are of value to the hive bee and for honey production in the British Isles. "Plants And Beekeeping" contains a wealth of timeless information that will be of considerable utility to the modern bee keeper, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Plants and the Beekeeper", "Honey in Relation to Nectar Source", "Notes on Unpalatable and Poisonous Honey", "Pollen", "The Hive Bee and Pollination", "Artificial Bee Pasturage or Planting for Bees", "Garden Flowers and The Honey Bee", "Bee Gardens", "Apiary Hedges and Windbreaks", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on bee keeping.
