    looks good thanks for posting the picture is the plant going to be planted out side or do you have to bring it in during the winter? Now if you had a bunch of them planted they would provide some great early forage.

    These are outdoor plants. I bought it yesterday at our state bee meeting. I'll plant it here shortly. I've got some witch hazel on order as well so that'll be a good winter food source as well. There is a video on the facebook page in my signature.

    The bees are getting to a frenzy around here. They are all over the henbit and some little blue flowers. I put some syrup out for them, too, and they're just going crazy. I'm happy they're buzzing in and out of both hives. Good times are just around the corner (I hope!).
