Re: Sourwood honey
I'm planning on planting 65 1-foot tall sourwood "trees" on my farm this winter in two separate areas to one day allow my bees as well as ourselves to reap the gourmet benefits of their tasty nectar. Anyone know how long it takes for sourwood trees to grow to at least 10 foot tall? I have one area that is shady in the afternoon, but the other is in full sun. I plan on irrigating them, but from what I've read in this thread it may not be worth all that time and expense, especially if the only place sourwood grows is in the mountains of which I am not.
Started beekeeping in 2013 and having a blast with my 17 small cell hives!!
