What a great idea! Not only will you provide publicity for his book, but also for growing native plants as well. Wonderful.

What a great idea that is; Plants for people with hives and honey from native plants.

I'm reading it right now so I can plant a nice bed this spring that will supply nectar from spring till fall.

Very good descriptions of plants and what they need to grow.

Here's another study I wish I'd known about before publishing. To summaries, conservationists hate honeybees because they move in and take all the resources from native bees (pollen, nectar, and cavity nesting space). But it seems after they initially move in they still pollinate the plants adequately enough to produce more nectar plants. I had noted that honeybees don't bother with young trees unless they're all grown together as in an orchard.

I gave a copy of your book to the NCBG gift shop, to consider for sale and to then add to the library at the garden. I would think it is a book that any botanical garden would be happy to stock for sale!

I hope I have enough nectar and pollen for both the natives and honeybees.

I can't believe how fast my milkweed has gone to flower.

This thread is a great way to navigate to Amazon and purchase goods for "Credits" that go to the forum

I should probably add, to everyone I promised a free book to in exchange for using their photos, I will be sending those out along with the jar of honey I promised. What's holding this all up now is that I just need a week of clear weather so I can harvest honey. It's been nothing but rolling thunder storms here for almost two weeks. I am sorry for the wait.

I just caught the video you had posted in March. Must have missed it.
What happens when a native bee meets a killer bee collecting nectar? Anything? or do they just move on to another flower?

I don't mind the wait for such a special treat! You can't change the weather.....

Would that be the jar of honey we had spoke about.... To be used as a prize for one of the P.O.M. contests?
If so.... I'll discuss it with Sage and have her add it into one of her future contest lead in lines.
