The weather forecast tells us that this will be the last day of sunshine for a while in the Willamette Valley, so a stroll in the gardens seemed wise. There were blooms and honey bees to be found: two pics/video each of Mahonia x media ‘Arthur Menzies’, Hybrid Mahonia; Hamamelis × intermedia 'Jelena’, Jelena Witch Hazel; Garrya fremontii, Fremont Silktassel; and Arctostaphylos ‘Siskiyou Pink’, Siskiyou Pink Manzanita. . . . . . . #mahonia #hamamelis #witchhazel #jelena #garrya #silktassel #arctostaphylos #manzanita #garden #gardening #gardenwalk #plants #flowers #honeybees #pnwnativeplants #nativeplants #pollinatorplants #plantsforbees . #oregon #oregonnursery #dancingoaksnursery #dancingoaksnurseryandgardens #willamettevalley

Oenothera lindheimeri, also known as Gaura lindheimeri also commonly known as Gaura, Lindheimer's Beeblossom, Lindeheimer's butterfly weed is a low source of pollen and a minor source or nectar for honeybees. "...[Native to] Southern USA. Tall spikes of rosy-pink to red flowers; long flowering, i.e. no mass display. Flowers opening evenings, and remain open into the next day. Pollen light brownish-yellow to light yellow. There can be minor flowering outside the given dates." (Johannsmeier, M. F. (2016). Beeplants of South Africa: Sources of Nectar, Pollen, Honeydew and Propolis for Honeybees) Also known as Pragkers in Afrikaans; 山桃草 in Chinese; Sirokesäkynttilä in Finnish; and Prachtkerze in German; respectively.

Calluna vulgaris, formerly known as Erica vulgaris, is commonly known as Heather, Ling, Bellflower or Calluna is a good source of nectar and pollen for honeybees. "Honey can become thixotrophic-need to be vibrated to removed from comb Flowering period: Mid July to November. Rare in eastern Newfoundland and scattered throughout Nova Scotia. Locally occurring on peaty or damp sandy soils." "...Temperate Europe, where the reddish thixotropic honey is well known. Pollen is in shades of slate-grey or olive-grey, crude pollen 23.7%. Hardy ornamental for cool areas. Deserves consideration when planting for bee food." (Johannsmeier, M. F. (2016). Beeplants of South Africa: Sources of Nectar, Pollen, Honeydew and Propolis for Honeybees) "A leading honey plant in UK and Northern EU, introduced and locally established from Newfoundland to Michigan and south to NJ and WV. The honey is reddish-amber, very heavy-bodied with am aromatic flavor. It is very popular in Europe and brings a premium price." (Lovell, H. B. (1966). Honey Plants Manual) "The month of September in Poland is called Wrzesien, taking is name from heather, which blooms profusely in fields and meadows throughout all of Poland at that time of year." (Knab, S. H., & Knab, M. A. (1999). Polish herbs, flowers & folk medicine.) Also known as Blouklokkies in Afrikaans; Bruguerola in Catalan; Hedelyng in Danish; Struikhei in Dutch; Kanerva in Finnish; Callune commune in French; Heidekraut in German; Beitilyng in Icelandic; Brughiera in Italian; Røsslyng in Norwegian; Wrzos in Polish; Torga-ordinária in Portuguese; brecina in Spanish; and Ljung in Swedish; respectively.

Leucadendron species commonly known as Leucadendron or Conebush is a possible good source of nectar and pollen for honeybees. "…Leaves around the cone-like flower heads, the so-called involucral leaves, are mostly yellow, hence the common name. Dioecious. Both male and female flowers of many leucadendrons secrete nectar, but this is not necessarily available to bees: bracts may enclose flowers. Male plants may bloom for much longer periods than female plants. Dry and sticky types of pollen are produced in different species. The listed species are visited by honey bees, but the use of cone bushes as sources of pollen probably occurs more generally. Brownish-yellow pellets noted. No record yet of the resin on cone bracts being collected as propolis. Many species are harvested commercially as Cape greens and as dry cones. More observations are needed." (Johannsmeier, M. F. (2016). Beeplants of South Africa: Sources of Nectar, Pollen, Honeydew and Propolis for Honeybees) Also known as Hopeapuut in Finnish. #Leucadendron #Conebush #nectarsource #pollensource #honeybees #flowersforbees #foodforbees #plantsforbees #Hopeapuut #Repost @plantnurserynerd (@get_repost) ・・・ LEUCADENDRON || I took some time off work @ausflorapacific recently I thought these had finished flowering but spotted this lonely guy Leucadendron Discolor Male form on my return . . . . . #leucadendron #leucadendrons #leucadendrondiscolor #atwork #red #redcentre #proteaceae #nofilter #nofilternecessary #plants #flowers #flowershow #growthings #prettythings #garden #nursery #workinginanursery #wholesalenursery #plantstagram
Hebe species also commonly known as Hebe are fast growing and a low source of pollen and nectar for honeybees.

T r e e T r a d i t I o n s // Looking forward to planting a young cobnut tree down by the hives in the new year ~ to offer food for bees and humans alike. Hoping this turns to tradition with different food bearing trees that develop over the years. This is a picture of a hazel hedge on a cold evening some months back as it’s hammering with rain outside and I’m definitely staying in the warm 😉#tradition #foodforest #cobnut #trees #hazelnut #hazel #newyear #treesforbees #plantsforbees #forage #foraging #food #foodie #permaculture #pollen #nectar #plantsforlife #winterskies #sunset #skies #silhouette #planting #gardening #lifestyle #landscape #latelight #apiary #bees #beekeeping #sussex
F i e l d P r e s s i n g s //Feeling inspired by @mrstudiolondon to take some field pressings from around the apiary this year.
