I didn't get much honey from my Melbourne hives last year and don't know if it was my beekeeping or the weather.
This year is better so far and I can see the bees out on cape weed, but I don't know whether it speeds up or slows down from here.
If there is such a things as a 'honey flow' in Melbourne, does anyone know when it is, when it would end ?
Or is it just erratic/random due to the suburban environment.
I was thinking of feeding my bees 1:1 sugar syrup next year about August to build up bee numbers of Spring honey flows.
thanks for your time everyone
