Mint is a very good bee plant. Also it's relatives, catnip and
horehound. Such honey is very dark with a peculiar lemony tang.

It was queried:
I am planing to get a bee swarm soon and am designing a plant list to
cover all times of year.
I am particularly interested in early flowering plants, if any of you
could give any sugestions.
thanks so much
When we moved in there was hardly a bee to be had, now, they are all
over the place. I attribute this to the diversity of pollen I offer.
That being stated you can pretty much cover yourself thusly:
early Japanese plum (very early)
Gooseberries they really like pixwell (early)
...then just about everything naturally blooms...
A fall raspberry (sort of late spring)that was not cut to the ground in
all sorts of raspberry which can take you right up to fall..and then
plain ordinary green hostas...bees love them...these will carry you a
long long time...
I mention the above becasue I have a lot of pollinators, but these are
the ones the bees LOVE!!!
