    Re: Planning for my first bee's come spring

    Don't worry about the full sun thing. Not a necessity. Actually a hindrance if it gets real hot.

    and congrats for taking the plunge!

    recommendations for winter wrap

    Well, lucky me, my first year with bees going into some cold weather!

    Cool. Wouldn't dream of doing that in GA, they would hate it in our summer.

    Re: Tulsi forage

    Yeah, the other thing about it, it has been growing like a monster in our garden box, spreading all over the place.
    I plan to plant it around the bee hives next spring!

    Re: goldenrod smell

    Hey, Dan,
