Title: ONTARIO, CANADA - Great guide for plants
Post by: Perry on January 16, 2014, 09:57:48 am
When you hover over the plant you chose, a picture pops up of the plant and what it provides.

"Welcome to the online floral calendar for Ontario's beekeepers. Using the dropdown menu, you can quickly determine which plants are in bloom and the value of each blooming plant as nectar or pollen resources for bees.

Floral calendars are an essential tool for beekeepers. They provide information on the yearly cycles in the flow of nectar for honey production and availability of pollen. This helps beekeepers maximize honey production while maintaining colony health. This is the first time this type of information has been made available for Canadian beekeepers in an electronic and easy-to-access format.

This resource was created by the Canadian Pollination Initiative (NSERC-CANPOLIN) with financial support from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs and the University of Guelph through the Knowledge Translation and Transfer (KTT) program. Seeds of Diversity is generously hosting the website."
