I keep hearing the nectar flow is over here in North Florida (Lamont/Tallahassee area) I am going into my hives this weekend to see what kind of honey stores they have to get them through the late summer dearth...but I notice in my garden the honey bees (and lots of other bees and butterflies) are all over my anise-hyssop bushes. They are all beautifully decked out in their long purple flower heads and this is the first time I have actually sees the bees foraging in my garden. I had planted a couple of acres of wildflowers year before last and never saw one honey bee on them...but they really are taking to the anise - hyssop. I think I will plant boo koos of them next year. Has anyone had any experience with bees foraging this flower and if it makes good honey?
