‘Beekeeping is a hobby any interested amateur could explore’ – that’s the message of this book which aims to take the mystique out of keeping bees. Alan Campion uses his own experiences to describe in plain terms how to go about setting up a hive, what to do during the first few years and what to expect from your bees.
The text is beautifully illustrated with line drawings by Gay Hodgson who is also an enthusiast of small scale beekeeping.

The ‘Bees at the Bottom of the garden’ book is a best seller which we carry good stocks of due to its continued popularity – the sort of book you can pick up and learn a snippet from and put down again and is very informative on many aspects of beekeeping.
