as long as there's enough rainfall my dutch white blooms all summer & into the fall. it does not produce decent nectar & pollen until the temp hits 80* & above. mowing stimulates new blooms.

this year we were pushing 80 in early january.  i quit hunting deer because i was worried about rattlesnakes.
all the rain has kept it mild by our standards.  i don't think we've hit 100 a single time this year and that's unusual.  we usually have a few weeks where we hover around or above 100 in july and august.  how does white clover hold up to those temperatures and drought conditions?  i can't ever recall seeing clover bloom into june.  normally we are very very dry in the summer too.  this has been a really strange year.  i'm betting we have a cold winter (by our standards).

yeah, normally the rain just cuts off in june and other than an occasional shower it doesn't show back up until october or november.  our honey flow is mostly over by june 1st and then we get some weaker fall flows.  people near cotton may do a little better in the simmer.  so much land is in planted pines now compared to when i was younger that it has really changed beekeeping from what i can tell.
