I am a first year beekeeper in the West Georgia/East Alabama area, near I-20. I have noticed small patches of goldenrod starting to bloom in my area. I am keeping notes on different events in my area so that I might have some idea of what to expect in the future. Is this a typical bloom time for goldenrod in my area, or is it early? Also, will the bees collect both nectar and pollen from the goldenrod? Thanks!
