About the Author

David Squire has a keen interest in bees, having kept them for many years. As he says, "Bee-keeping is an exciting and fascinating hobby - practical, fulfilling and contemplative, with the bonus of working in harmony with nature." David studied gardening at the Hertfordshire College of Horticulture and at the Royal Horticultural Society's Garden at Wisley, Surrey. He has received the Garden Writers Association of America's 'Quill and Trowel' award.

Reviews

"A charming little book for anyone who wants a gentle introduction to the world of honeybees, with a surprising amount of useful information about gardening for bees."

-- Ken Thompson, author of No Nettles Required

"It is a true feast for the eye and a beautiful stocking filler for anyone interested about bees, their remarkable story and the relationship humans have long had with them "

* Postive News - October 2011 *

"The Bee-Kind Garden is a sweet, illustrated book. The information it contains is in nugget-sized chunks and it does not go too in-depth for the bee novice. It certainly illustrates that there is a lot more to bee keeping then just getting their honey!"

* Wildlife Trust - Birmingham *

"This book is a godsend to anyone who is stumped about what to buy a beekeeper for a birthday or Christmas present."

* The Honey Press *
