Bees – Plants to Attract

Q: I recently had quite a bit of my property near Jasper cleared. I would like to make the land an apiary because of the number of sourwood trees in the area. What could I plant in the cleared area that would provide some honey? I plan on using the same area again in about 8 to 10 years for loading harvested timber.

A: Clover is good but there are many more plants you can cultivate to give bees what they need year-round.

See Bee Conservation in the Southest, there is a long list at the end.
