Re: Anyone familiar with Anise Hyssop for bees?
One of the favourites for bees, great nectar producer,according to the experts if you have 1 acre field of this flower, you can expect anywhere between 1-1,5 tons of honey.
From June - July to September bees are all over it.
I sow some seeds this spring, some flowers came up, some will hopefuly come up in the spring. This fall I will plant 120 plugs (one tray). Good thing it's perenial and it keeps reproducing without our help, once established. It's good for humans too, dried could be used as herbal tea, or nice anise scented culinary seasoning.
