Greenhouse and bees

Posted by blueberrytalk on April 16, 2009

The plants in the greenhouse attract honeybees, bumblebees and mason bees. At this point in the season there is little available for the bees. Blossoms have just appeared on an ornamental plum, cherry plums and maples. The greenhouse could be more bee friendly if we propagated more earlier varieties of rhododendron like the Abigail and Cheer shown in the picture.
