Dr. Bashioum’s Traveling Bees

Traveling Bees

While it might not be warm enough for native bees to go to work in Minnesota yet, my traveling bumblebees have arrived from Biobest. I’ve installed the hive in my Wayzata garage greenhouse for my non-cold hardy trees that are protected from freezing temps in the garden. The bees don’t bother people, but provide a way for the potted fruit trees to get pollinated before the local bees are active. This is my second time using the bees, it’s a bit easier than doing it myself with a little brush! Gardening in Minnesota can be challenging, but the rewards are many.

Early blossoms await  â€ª#‎pollination‬. Peaches, plums, apricots and nectarines..
