12 July 2020Excellent website - description of Lime trees and their usefulness to bees
This link will take you to an article on Lime Trees. Here at Findon we always hope for a good nectar flow and foraging from our Lime Trees which are now in full flower. The photograph of the bee carrying pollen hasn't helped our researches. We are seeing a lot of Lime Green pollen being taken into the colonies and our Pollen Colour chart suggests a range of plants we wouldn't assume to be plentiful here. The pollen colour guides on our website suggest that Lime Blossom pollen is bright green (scroll to bottom of page.)
This web page has a different approach to identifying plants to pollen colour.
