'A wealth of knowledge! This book will help many keen bee enthusiasts to start their journey in beekeeping.' Mat Lumalasi, Rooftop Honey

Bees need our help. Under threat from insecticides and habitat loss, they're in decline the world over. It's time to show some love to our favourite pollinators, whether by installing a hive in your garden or on your rooftop, or simply by adding more bee-friendly plants to your patch. Backyard Bees is the bestselling Australian bee guide to walk you through everything you need to know, now fully revised and updated.

Author Doug Purdie offers friendly, expert advice on keeping happy, healthy bees and harvesting the liquid gold, including tips on choosing a hive and equipment, and an all-new chapter on the Flow Hive, the innovative beehive design that has taken beekeeping by storm. You'll also find case studies and anecdotes from beekeepers from all walks of life, and 20 delicious recipes for all that honey, from Toasted Honey Granola to Bees Knees Cocktails.

Not ready to keep bees? This edition also includes new chapters on supporting your local bee population without a hive, with tips for planting bee-friendly gardens and creating habitats and homes for solitary bees.

So join the beekeeping revolution. Once introduced to the charms of beekeeping and the taste of warm honeycomb direct from the hive, you'll be hooked.
