HERE COMES THE FLOW
« on: January 28, 2011, 02:27:54 AM »
Messmate are starting to flower very very much. More than in recent years around here. The skewy weather has probably triggered it. Um I reckon about six weeks of abudant nectar up this way from her on in. Hope the same is happening in everyone's else part of the world.

I don't know what eucalypt it is that is flowering down here but i extracted two weeks ago and i had a look the other day and one of the boxes i extracted already has all 8 frames full of nectar and some capped!

Is there an easy online reference to identify eucalypts?

Leatherwood is firing up down here. Hoping for a good harvest, first time moving my hives to the rainforest country.
