Honey Plants of Eastern Canada
This has become one of my favourite books to reference when I am thinking of expanding my pollinator plant patches or when I'm looking to identify a plant I've seen bees visiting. With a wealth of practical information about each plant's nectar and pollen loads + bloom times, including charts and a good index for searching by plant names, this book is a valuable resource for beekeepers, farmers and gardeners alike! This book is primarily focused towards the honey bee, but the information is great for all nectar foraging insects; all bees & butterflies welcome an abundance of nectar-producing plants.
