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.
