Honeybee forage blend for 1 acre
We have some spare pasture and would like to plant a blend of flowers/legumes for our honeybees- do you know of a good blend on the market, or have suggestions for something that will bloom after the blackberries are done? Something that will provide a load of nectar/pollen, will reseed and is easy maintenance.
You are looking for something to plant that is compatible for livestock, or just a pollinator blend for an area you won't be using for livestock anymore?
The Xerces Society has a list of blends that are great for bees and are specialized for particular regions.
If you are interested in pasture mixes, below is more information:
