Comfrey and Bumblebees

Posted by blueberrytalk on May 23, 2008

The Comfrey is in bloom and it is the height of the blueberry blossom. Honey bees have lots to feed on and the bumblebee population is well below it’s peak so the Comfrey isn’t attracting many visitors. The Comfrey continues to bloom throughout the summer so it will become important later as a way of keeping bumblebees in the area. Bumblebees like Comfrey in the same way that honeybees like apple blossoms.
