North Bend Honey Pollen and Nectar Chart
This is a very good resource. Mark Borovatz created this great chart on local pollen. The chart shows the blooming dates for the last 4 years and you can enter in the blooming dates for the flowers in your bee garden/yard for this year as they occur.
The Pollen Chart is helpful to identify what season/dates particular flowers will be in bloom so you are able to get a variation of flowers to supply pollen all season long for the bees. It will also help you plan your season to know when a “honeyflow” will be coming on to take full advantage of the work your girls are doing. Lastly it provides the Pollen Color so when flowers are in bloom you can see what type of flower pollen your girls are bringing into the hive.
