Burning pollination question....
« on: June 14, 2012, 05:01:32 PM »
Does anyone know if the honeybee pollinates the myrtlewood tree?  We have these trees  here on the Southern Oregon Coast.

Yes they do. The timing of the bloom is late winter and early spring, with most nectar going for the use of early brood rearing. It is not known as a great honey producer although it is worked.
