What do we have around for any bees out in the increasingly mild month of January?
So far it’s been really wet here on the west, but very little snow around us.
In between the showers there are likely to be winter insects, even bees, out and about.
What do we have flowering for them?
Mahonia, Gorse, Ivy, Periwinkle, Hellebores, Snowdrops
There is strong growth on the other early bulbs, and plans to take lots of cuttings so that the Mahonia can be spread into hedge rows across the farm. The flowers and berries are edible too.
