"Keeping bees in your own backyard, whether out in the country or right in the heart of the city, is all the rage these days. In this delightful collection of 500 beekeeping tips, honeybee expert Jim Tew provides all you need to know to get started in this rewarding hobby. For easy reference, the tips are divided into ten chapters, covering all aspects of beekeeping, from hives and equipment through buying your first bees to managing your colony and processing your honey crop. The tips are grouped logically so that beginners can build their knowledge gradually, while old hands might prefer to dip in and out at random or refer to the index to access specific topics. The tips are accompanied by simple annotated diagrams where required, and a series of specially commissioned linocut prints by printmaker Melvyn Evans rounds out this charming package"-- Provided by publisher.
