How would you describe the perfect apiary in detail?
Would you like to see multiple seasonal blooms in your apiary? ... a variety of fruit trees scattered around (plum, peach, and/or pear)? ... What about water sources? ... flowering hedges? ... liberally sown wildflower seeds?
As you can tell I'm planning!
I realize the odds of producing a honey crop within the first season of establishing package bees is pretty slim ... is it impossible though?
Sounds like I need a crash course in Texas plants and trees! I will say this ... our Peachtree is covered with bees when in bloom along with our hedges!
This is going to be so fun even with all the challenges!
