    Default Hi from Ottawa, Canada

    Hello everyone and many thanks to all the contributors who have provided a virtual encyclopedia of knowledge. I am about to get my first hives and really appreciate the numerous tips for beginners. I do have one question(to start ).
    A farmer has asked me to place bees on his property where he will be growing gladiolas for commercial sale but I haven't been able to find any info on what the honey would be like from this source. Any info would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome............... Glad you are here.

    As far as glads as a honey source.......... wow,
    that's a good question. If anyone can answer it
    will be here. That must be a gorgeous site to see
    loads of glads.

    I'd suggest posting that question in the Bee Forum
    and maybe Everything Honey.

    Welcome Gabloona...I don't know about whether the flowers you mentioned are more of nectar source or a pollen source. Perhaps someone will show up here that knows the answer to your question. You might also ask this question in other parts of this forum to see if you get a response. Again, welcome and best wishes.
