Does anyone have a Scarlet Monkey flower and/or Yellow Monkey flower plant they would like to divide? I'm planting a bird and bee garden in a wet mostly shady area. Any other suggestions would be helpful.

Heather Welcome home! I hope you had a wonderful and warm winter! I would enjoy heading down there with you next week. What is the best way to coordinate? 

Comment by Heather K on April 10, 2012 at 1:34pm

Honeybees + Mason Bees + Bumble Bees are awakening!

 Fruit blossoms needing pollination have begun to bloom!  Remember to Not mow your first bloom of dandilions, as they provide early food for  early emerging native bees, along with blooming mustards/brassicas. 

Want to learn more?  I'll be heading down to Burlington to pick up some Italian honeybees (Apis mellifera) in a week or so (4/15-4/20).  I also hope to find the some Hawaiin queen nucs & Carniolans. 

 If you are intersted in riding down to Burlington with me to pick up the bees let me know.   Best way to reach me is get your phone number to me by phone text message, or leave comment on my TW message page, or in person.  You can also come to the Beekeepers club meeting as my guest this weds pm 4/11.

 Spring Plant sales & workshops are being posted on this event page:


Gratitude to All who made our 3rd annual Community Seed Swap a success again!  “Seeds Into The Hands of the People”.
