After a post on my blog http://melistalagma.blogspot.com about tilia x europaea (linden), there has been an issue whether the nectar of the plant is dangerous to bees and how much. Some Beekeeping books say that there is honey (tilia x europaea - linden) and some not. Does someone knows something about it;
Sorry my English is not good!

Your English is fine. It is at least as good as many who post on this forum, including mine.

To answer your question. I don't know. I never heard that before.

I queried that tree last week and was told that it is very good nectar source for bees. In the US is known as Basswood as well as Linden, Europe appears to know the tree as Lime and the UK also claims it as a fine honey source.

We feel the Linden(Basswood) tree provides one of the most distinct and asked for honey. REALLY good Linden honey may have a slightly green hue to it. Some silly people have also gone so far as to name their business after the tree.
