The Wild Bee Handbook: The Amazing Lives of Our Wild Species and How to Help Them Thrive
The Wild Bee Handbook is a practical, illustrated guide that will introduce you to the common wild bees you might find in your garden. Through a handy directory, learn how vital wild bees are to the ecosystem and discover how we can garden to offer them the food and habitat they need. This book is an essential resource for anyone interested in biodiversity and sustainable gardening, featuring sections on container gardening, the no-dig method, how to maintain soil health, the principles for rewilding and wildflower gardening for success ­– it doesn’t matter how big or small your space, you can still garden to support wild bees. 
About the Author
Sarah Wyndham Lewis and her husband, Dale Gibson, founded Bermondsey Street Bees in 2007, a beekeeping and sustainability consulting business which was awarded 2016 Small Artisan Producer of The Year at the Great Taste Award. The advent of bees in her life prompted her to transform a small, neglected patch in Suffolk into a test-bed for bee plantings. By teaching herself how to garden from scratch, she has formulated her own pragmatic approach to planting. Her first book Planting for Honeybees was published by Quadrille in 2018.
