This is a wonderful guide that I’d recommend to anyone. It’s comprehensive and filled with the latest science on the benefits of pollinators, their biology, how to identify them and most importantly, how we can protect them.
Covering everything from wildlands to farms to golf courses, this book will be useful for home gardeners, landscape professionals and others wanting to promote and bolster pollinator populations. The chapters on creating pollinator friendly landscapes are based on concrete science and provide stellar recommendations for plant palette and placement, but also habitat protection and creation.
If you have a vegetable garden, you’ll want to learn the techniques herein to insure a reliable population of pollinators for your crops regardless of the size of your plot. Accompanying photos are wonderful and well captioned. This book is highly recommended.
