Hello to everyone. I am new to this forum. I plan to getting my first hive this spring. I live in the Kansas City metro area and plan on keeping the hive in my backyard. I do alot of gardening, especially with flowers. Does anyone have any suggestions on pollen rich flowers and plants that I should incorporate into my flower beds? I have focused on perennials and natives in the past. I do have bees, butterflies and hummingbirds visit my flowers, but wonder if I have enough to support a hive. A neighbor has cherry and apple trees. My neighborhood is filled with redbuds and crabapple trees. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions?
