Yellow Gum is flowering

Alf Brugman Beekeeping Blog

Yellow Gum ( Eucalyptus leucoxylon) is flowering in the northern country of Victoria. Our hives are in those forests to hopefully gather some honey from this species. The main factor which needs to change is that the weather needs to warm up and allow the bees to fly. Bees are cold blooded and can’t fly unless it is warm enough for them to leave the hive and for the flowers to yield nectar. Let’s hope that we get plenty of beautiful honey in the next few months!
