    Hi All,

    I was wondering if you could help me out here. Id like to plant some long flowering summer plants for my bees. Any suggestions on what to plant in a hot climate. I can irrigate pretty regularly.
    Thanks

    Wow.. Namibia.. Buddy, your going to have to find out what grows well there and is not considered invasive...
    I am planting a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Sainfoin, Buckwheat and two types of sweet clover.. All of which can be cut and baled to feed cows as well as providing forage for bees..
    My location and yours I am quite certain will not fit well together when it comes to planting bee pasture....
