Bob's Flower and Hive Report

What's in bloom?  What's the hive doing?

Knowing about the bloom of “Honey Plants”, their timing and amount, is very important to understanding colony health. Bob Blackwelder, our honey flower expert, gives a flower report at each meeting. Listed below are bloom samples, brought in by our members.

Equally important in the management of a hive, is understanding what the hive is doing.  This, of course, varies with the bloom and the season.
