Hubam clover for bees
« on: November 27, 2010, 12:41:20 PM »
I got a flier in the mail today for a company selling Hubam Clover.

Anybody ever plant this specifiacally for bees?

Is this like yellow sweet clover, being a second year bloom?

Thank you for any experience and comments.

 Hubam is a annual. I have not planted yet, but i have 15 lb to plant this spring. I have planted both yellow & white biannual for 4 years now. I have found that, for me, planting in august, for biannual, cuts down on weed compition. I think spring would be best for hubam.
