Bees in backyard crocuses

Bees in backyard crocuses

It helps to plant for the bees. We’ve been adding more and more crocuses, planting them in the fall. The bees really appreciate the early source of pollen.

We had a few crocuses growing in the backyard and noticed that the bees like them, so each year we buy more in the fall and plant them for spring. Eventually, I’d like to see the entire backyard blooming in crocuses.


About Beekeeping in the Berkshires

Here at Berkshire Farms Apiary we've been keeping bees and making honey since 2005, with hives in most of the surrounding towns. We also make pure beeswax candles, lip balm, and hand salve, as well as give presentations. As secretary of the Northern Berkshire Beekeepers Association, I am very active in the local beekeeping community.
