ohhh, Darn! when I came across that claim, I thought wow, this is so interesting and exciting news just one potted lime being such a great nectar source... Alas! the dangers of being a city girl getting allll of her info online. sheesh
I'm so sorry I wasted everyone's time (sigh).
David thank goodness we've got a citrus expert here, lol! I didn't realize that honeybees liked citrus. On standard sites, I never got this detailed faq so it's cool to know. Usually people only talk about the Juneberries, Almonds, and crabapples. How interesting!
Keeperwannabe, what's odd is that a lot of flowers that don't seem to produce scent, the honeybees love holly, and the Russian sage flowers, not to mention oregano flowers or clover. I'm almost scratching my head and thinking what are these honeybees thinking, lol! what's so "sweet" about these sort of blossoms, lol! It's a stumper....
