SPECIAL PRICE- Bees at the Bottom of the Garden

By Alan Campion

This book is good for beginners in that it is concisely written and well illustrated. It doesn’t go into the same depth as “Guide to Bees and Honey”, but is much easier to pick up and read if you have no experience of keeping bees yet.

From the Back Cover: “Beekeeping is a hobby any interested amateur could explore – that is the message of this work 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, and what to expect from your bees.”
