At the end of April I will be returning to Canada just before my package bees are delivered. Another thing I need to do while I am there is do some planting. What I don't know is what I should plant that the bees will like and will grow where I am. My farmland is 108 miles north of the North Dakota border.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I would like a few bush type plants. And no lilacs, my wife is allergic to them.

Manitoba is known for sweet clover seed production. Bees just love it,same as dutch clover. My favourite mix is dutch clover in the middle of the field, and sweet clover on perimeter. Honey tastes fantastic. As for bush plant, what's better than blackberry:smile:

Thanks for the reply. Blueberry sounds perfect; I must get a few and plant them at the edge of the paddock. I was thinking of clover, never heard of Dutch clover before. I'll give it a go and see if it grows.
