Get Ready for Next Spring with Our Bees for Sale in Brisbane

Bees are the gardener’s faithful friend. They tirelessly pollinate flowers and are necessary for the production of many types of fruits and vegetables. The Bunyip Beekeeper can help you get the most out of your garden with a backyard bee hive. It’s never too early to start planning for spring, which is why now is the perfect time in Brisbane to buy bees.

Spring Flowers in Brisbane that Bees Love

Winter and spring are the most productive months for flowers in Brisbane, which means your bees will get started much earlier than in the cooler southern regions of Australia. Honeybees enjoy a wide variety of blooms, but some essential ones should be in every savvy gardener's arsenal to keep bees happy and buzzing for more.

Forget-me-nots, lavender, and nasturtiums are all superb to attract bees and keeping your hives thriving. They are all relatively easy to grow and are reasonably showy as well. Consider also coleus and Indian pennywort which makes an ideal groundcover. Bees appreciate these tropical beauties and will reward you with fine honey.

Apart from flowers, many common pot herbs are also much loved by bees. Basil, thyme and sage are all ideal choices for attracting these little workers, and many also have the added benefit of keeping aphids and whiteflies at bay.
