Another example of an Australian native which was cut off at ground level and is now back in full growth.
This is a Moonah which generally grows in sandy coastal soil.



This one was cut off about 6 months ago. Look at me now. Three divided trunks were lopped at about 4 feet off the ground.



Blossom showing on what we call a mongrel bred apple box.



The same apple box which was cut off at ground level about 20 years ago. The diameter at the base was about 4 feet and now the sucker which was sent up is about 3 feet already.  The only reason I realised there was blossom on it again was the hum of all the bees.

Hey Geoff,

Are these in you bee's area?  In suburbia, mine could be feeding anywhere and the chances of me finding out what it is on is pretty remote..

So what's the yeild like this season?

Hey Phil, I find that there is always something flowering in suburbia and up here the bees fly and bring in the good stuff all year.

I simply call my honey "mixed urban flora"

I have around 8 hives too! seven + one nuc which is quickly turning into another hive Sad. TOO MUCH NECTAR + POLLEN!
I'll have to get the camera out and take some pics too.

I only have the two hives, but I'm sure I could sustain a lot more. They're chockas and trying load the hive up to the rafters.

I decided to rob the hives in the next couple weeks  grin, just as soon as I can hire an extractor.
