February Plants for Honey Bees

February is here! Hopefully the old groundhog didn't see his shadow and spring will be here sooner than later. Longer days and warmer temperatures will have the honey bees buzzing everywhere looking for food to feed their hungry babies.

Hi Margaret,

Thank you for keeping us updated on the honeybees. Smiling

It's warming up earlier than usual around here. The peach tree and trout lilies are already blooming and I think the honey bees are happy about that! lol

HI Christine I'm sure those bees are quite happy about anything blooming right now.
Ours have been bringing in orange pollen that I think is coming from crocus.
