Re: Bees don't work blackberry??
I'm NOT saying that bees DON'T work blackberry, but it's not a major source for me. Blackberry blooms here about the same time as Tulip Poplar and white clover. We have a few blackberries growing around our field edges and lots and lots of blackberries growing on very poor fallow areas. I do see honeybees on it occasionally but not in significant numbers. I do wonder if it has something to do with the soil it grows in. Most of the blackberries here are growing in soil so poor it will only grow sage grass and pine trees.
The more I learn about bees, the less I know.
