January's list of plants are still blooming, and now February is here to add more to the list. It's still too cold for serious gardening in the North, But the South is getting warm enough for gardeners to be out. Temperatures are also warming up enough for the honey bees to fly more often.
Honey Bees not only get pollen and nectar this month, they can also get honeydew from Filiberts, American Elm and Musk Willow.
Here's a list of plants that begin blooming in February:
Date Palm Pollen
California Poppy Pollen
Common Alder Pollen
Winter Honeysuckle Nectar and Pollen
Hellebore Nectar and Pollen
Lenten Rose Nectar and Pollen
Daphne Nectar and Pollen
Cherry Nectar and Pollen
Filbert Pollen and Honeydew
Crocus Nectar and Pollen
American Elm Pollen and Honeydew
Musk Willow Nectar, Pollen and Honeydew
Glory Of The Snow Nectar and Pollen
Spring is not so far away and soon more and more flowers will be available for the honey bees as the weather warms enough for them to fly on foraging missions.
BEE OUR VALENTINE and treat us to some honey plants this year.
