Garden plants for Honey Bees

Foreword by Deborah Delaney, PH.D. University of Delaware By Peter Lindtner

Using his extensive portfolio of beautiful photographs, Lindtner tells the story of the important relationship between pollinators and plants. Lindtner’s life work is the cataloging of plants that serve as important resources to honey bees, arguably our most important pollinator in the agricultural arena. He couples his photographs with ecological and taxonomic information about each plant, and provides a rating system that reflects the importance of each plant to honey bee nutrition. Pictures of pollen and descriptions of the morphology of the pollen grains set this work apart from other guides to pollen plants.

 

This book, which could be considered a “coffee table” book due to the beautiful images throughout, will become a beekeepers and gardeners handbook. The search for planting options for honey bees and other pollinators is arguably one of the most understudied and anecdotal pursuits in the art and science of beekeeping. The valuable information provided in this book allows us to see the plant’s value from the honey bee’s perspective.
