Winter in Brisbane is not like winter anywhere else in the world. Our bees have an abundance of flora to feast on for pollen and nectar and bee keepers rarely stop harvesting honey.
French lavender traditionally flowers Winter-Spring. In my garden, it hasn’t stopped since it first started flowering in June 2014 – thanks to my lovely native girls and visiting honey bees.
Rocket – I never seem to make the most out of my rocket when it is growing, but the bees certainly love it when it bolts to flower.
