Better Beekeeping

PLANTS AND THEIR POLLEN COLOUR

What are your bees getting in to?

Watching your bees come and go out of your beehive is one of the many pleasures of having bees in your backyard. Here, taken from Werner Gysi’s book, Harmonic Beekeeping we have put together a plant list of common pollen sources for bees in both BC and Alberta. Their flower colour, pollen colour, and time of year. This not only works great as a guide as you watch your bees come and go with pollen sacks on their legs, but it also helps you in creating a gardening list!
