Honey flow
« on: May 07, 2007, 05:20:22 PM »
 I know there is no exact set time but does anybody know about when the honey flow starts in southeast Nebraska. Being new to this I thought this is something that might be worth finding out.

I would suggest your state apiary divison,county extinson agent or gardening group.  Surely someone would have a list or publication.  Good luck.

In Lincoln, the Last week of May.  In the country around Lincoln, the second week of June, (two weeks later).  Of course this year is crazy.
