The Beekeeper's Bulb Bonanza

Bees need the protein-rich nectar and pollen from flower bulbs, especially the early-bloomers, to survive and thrive: it’s their first fresh food after the long winter. Beekeepers often recommend planting bulbs to help feed the bees until wildflowers and spring perennials bloom. Bees are most attracted to flowers that are blue, purple, white and yellow. (Butterflies are attracted to purple, red, pink, yellow and orange.)

Here have grouped four of the best bee-loved flower bulb varieties: two early, one midseason and one later season. Your clients will love the fact that you are helping them to attract and feed the bees.
