Backyard Bees is the bestselling Australian bee guide to walk you through everything you need to know, now fully revised and updated.
Author Doug Purdie offers friendly, expert advice on keeping happy, healthy bees and harvesting the liquid gold, including tips on choosing a hive and equipment, and an all-new chapter on the Flow Hive, the innovative beehive design that has taken beekeeping by storm. You'll also find case studies and anecdotes from beekeepers from all walks of life, and 20 delicious recipes for all that honey, from Toasted Honey Granola to Bees Knees Cocktails.
