Of course it had to be after heavy winter-kill and with weakened colonies. Now I see carpets of white clover thicker and more wide-spread than I can remember, starting about 3-4 weeks ago. I started three new package colonies, also delayed due to late winter and delayed shipping dates, but on mostly drawn comb. My best hives are only now starting to fill the second hive body with brood and hopefully, populations will be booming in a couple more weeks. My question is, how long can I realistically hope the bumper white clover crop will last and offer nectar?
