Bee-friendly Flowers – What Blooms When

Q: I have nine hives and am a member of a local beekeepers club. We need to know what bee-friendly plants are blooming when.

A: I well remember my beekeeper father moving his hives from place to place to take advantage of the nectar flow. The University of Georgia Honey Bee lab has two good lists of bee-feeding flowers.
