I’m very excited to tell you that my second book – Attracting Garden Pollinators has just been published (April 21st 2022). It’s a perfect partner to my first book about bees, introducing some of the quirky pollinators in your garden and how to attract and support them.
Attracting Garden Pollinators is a friendly, accessible, information packed guide to gardening for and with pollinators.
This Book explores the role that pollinators play and how gardens and people with gardens can support them. From butterflies (and their caterpillars- with host plant information) to surprising pollinators (moths, wasps, beetles, flies and hornets) and of course including honeybees, hoverflies and bumblebees, this book will offer an insight into their fragile existence, lifecycles and their vital role in the food chain and the natural cycle.
Pollinators are in trouble, but our gardens can help. Gardens represent a vast, varied ‘nature reserve’ packed with plants rich in nectar and pollen to sustain these delicate creatures. Let me show you some of the fabulous pollinator characters and share their quirky stories.
In December 2022 this book was chosen as the Gardening Book of the Year by Mat Coward of the Morning Star.
” It’s concise, but full of information both functional and fascinating. Properly referenced and indexed, it includes lots of excellent photographs.
There are recommendations of suitable plants for all garden situations and for all seasons of the year, covering fruit and vegetables, trees, shrubs and herbs, as well as flowers.
Invaluable for down-to-earth environmentalists, this book will also introduce gardeners to a rewarding aspect of their hobby which they may previously have overlooked.”
This is a limited edition First edition hardback. All copies ordered from my website will be signed. If you would like a personal message adding, at no extra charge, please be sure to include those details when you order.
