Sour wood may come early!
Typically, this major nectar source doesn’t show up here in WNC until July/August, but already the trees are displaying mid-summer flowers. Check your supers and make sure your hives are queen-right so you can make the most of this highly valued honey crop!
To learn all about hive management in the Western North Carolina counties, join us at our next club meeting. Meetings are casual and begin at 7:00pm at the NC Agriculture Extension Education Room located at 699 Connahetta Street in Murphy.
