Honey Bee Preferred Plants


Nancy Higdon added on May 27, 2016 | Answered

We have bee hives and I would like to plant plants that help out honey bees and preferably bloom all summer. If they don't bloom all summer, I need a list that bloom at different times so the bees have flowers all summer. What plants do you suggest?
