    Question

    When does the main honey flow begin in southern Indiana?

    Would it be the same throughout "Planting Zone 6"?

    seems the first serious flow is about when all the fruit trees bloom,a lot of the wilflowers are busting out then too.

    all the fruits really come on within a few weeks of each other,end of march or early april. if the weather is foul,alot of blossoms don't last long and the flow is smaller.
