Honey prospects poor

Alf Brugman Beekeeping Blog 0 Comments

This season is shaping up to be similar to last in that there do not seem to be many prospects for eucalyptus trees flowering. Grey box ( Eucalyptus microcarpa ) is not showing any new growth at this stage and if this doesn’t change soon there will not be honey from one of our main sources. Red Ironbark ( Eucalyptus sideroxylon) has no budding and there is very little on Yellow Box ( Eucalyptus melliodora ) and Messmate Stringybark ( Eucalyptus oblique). Let’s home we can find some species yielding nectar in the next few months or the honey shortage will continue.
