What's Flowering: NSW
« on: September 23, 2016, 02:18:27 AM »
I'm a hour south west of Sydney and I'm seeing lots of things in flower. Clover, orange trees, fireweed, patterson curse, a small yellow flowered weed I don't have a name for and Wisteria.

Anyone know what this is? Bees love it.

It's a brassica. Not a great photo. Either canola, radish or turnip etc. Yes bees love it. High protein in the pollen and a good nectar supply usually.  Lots of pods set in that photo so it's all but finished.
Well done on starting this thread.

Thank you Andersonhoney you are right i found it in a bee book.

Does anyone know what the quality of honey is like from orange trees. Next door has an orange orchard and its in full bloom and bees are working it full on.

So happy to see this thread started. Mid north coast here. Think I'm seeing lots of stringy bark been on a staggered bloom for the past 6 weeks plus the jacaranda just starting.

Yeah Pet Bear I hope people contribute, I'm in a property investing forum that is full on and this one is really slow, there has to be more beekeepers out there lol. I checked my Jacaranda trees and nothing yet.

Keep at it. What's flowering victoria thread is almost 12 month old.(well done ozbuzz for starting it) Almost every time I post on it there is another 100 views. Still not many contributors, but that can be beekeepers sometimes not wanting others to get their flowers. Good luck.

Wort, curse, clover and most of the thistles are flowering around here.
Hope to have my first hive set up in about a week, should still be a bit of the above around for a few more weeks. Blackberries haven't started here yet and will continue in patches until Feb/Mar.

Have been away the last week, blackberries are just starting around here. Still a bit of clover and trefoil along with thistles, wort and  curse. Haven't noticed any of the messmate flowering yet.
