My name is Cristiano and I'm a big fan of botany and beekeeping.

While working as a film projection technician, I became passionate about the world of bees, while I was holding a small book by an old Italian beekeeper.
What was written in that booklet was a more natural and disinterested approach to the conduct of the apiary, paying close attention not to interfere too much with the natural rhythm of life of bees and hives.
Simultaneously with my work at the cinema in my city, I began to raise two small hives, using the precious advice I had learned in that book.
I devoted myself to passive observation of the bees and all their wonders.
It was a very nice moment of my life.
Later, after a few years, I had to give up that apiculture project for personal reasons and for the excessive distance between my house and the hives I owned.
So it was that I began and decided to deepen the understanding and study of the plants that attract bees and other pollinating insects. A new world opens before me.
Discovering that even a single flower can be a very important source of food for these small insects, made me take initiatives and began to grow on my small town terrace the plants that gave flowers all the time between spring and summer. autumn, giving the possibility to many insects to rest and to eat a little.
I began to realize that my little garden on the terrace was already known to many pollinating insects and I started reproducing these plants to exchange their seeds with friends and acquaintances who had the same passion.
So this little site was born, the concept is to multiply those small flowered oases just waiting to be visited by these wonderful insects.
