An insight to the addicting world of beekeeping

Suggested plants

Honey bees will typically forage flowers within a 2-3 mile radius, which doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t do our part to help them out. Spring and Summer are their busiest times of the year to gather pollen and nectar from plants near by. There is a huge list of plants that bees prefer, however, here is a smaller version of that list:

  • Echinacea
  • Lavender
  • AstersAsters
  • Chives
  • Sage
  • Mint
  • Marigolds
  • Phlox
  • Snapdragon
  • Oregano

Even plants that produce a composite flower (a flower with multiple blossoms on one stem) is another type of flowering plants that will attract honeybees.
