Reading an article published onVBA Webb site ,on bees Medicean Cabinet this research was primary on bumble bees,
However I made contact with Proffesser Irwin to ask this question what could I Plant in this area to help the Honey Bees.

She replied that a native plant called turtle head would benefit the honey bee.

We have many plants in Vermont that are in danger, this brings me back to Bee Health.

So as we look to more plants to make honey we may also want to look for more plants for The Bees Medicean Cabinet.
To reduce winter bee looses we need Health Bees.
Health Bees are Happy Bees and Happy Bees make more Honey and Bees :P
