Ray thanks mate for cross posting that - I went to general beekeeping only because putting hives on lavender here in Oz isn't all that common! But looks like Eco is our man (as usual
) thanks again mate!
Hey Eco, what rate did you stock them at? Currently I've got 6 on about 6 acres of crop! The majority of it is, and I'm gonna take a guess here (but I will ask to make sure), French lavender... Theres also some ornamental varieties as well. What sort of yield did you get and was there much pollen?
Talk about frenzied activity from the feral bees in the area when I put the stickies on today! I don't think there's much out there other than the lavender at the moment...
