  Are kiwi flowers good forage for bees? My friend has some kiwi plants that are about to bloom and I have a hive in his yard.

Apparently not good for nectar... i was reading that if you hire out hives for pollination of kiwi crops you need to provide some supplementary feeding as they won't get enough nectar from them.. if it's only one or two plants though then the bees will be able to find another food source as well so i probably wouldn't stress too much
