Bee Linden – a beekeepers delight

Posted by blueberrytalk on June 20, 2009

Linden, or Basswood, is a prime source of nectar for honeybees, producing some of the best honey. A Linden tree was just discovered within foraging distance for our bees. What a pleasant surprise! The Linden trees we are growing are an exercise in patience – it takes years before producing blossoms.
