Beekeeping is about management, control and learning to understand the honeybee.

When you take up beekeeping you are helping to lessen the decline in the bee population and as such it is a very worthwhile hobby. It can also become a very enjoyable, rewarding and sociable pastime - visiting others' hives and picking up vital hints and tips is all part of the fun - and harvesting and eating honey that your own bees have produced is a pure delight. Joanna Ryde covers all aspects of beekeeping, from the basic tools and equipment needed for setting up a hive to detailed advice on when to harvest honey and honey-inspired recipes, from delicious cakes to beauty products. This really is an excellent guide for anyone thinking of keeping bees.

Joanna Ryde is a dedicated and experienced beekeeper. She currently operates four hives in her Hampshire apiary, and sells her honey and home-made honey products locally.
