Beekeeper + Flower Farmer

Sheri Gramer introduces us to the son of a grower who also feels compelled to grow. He decided to do annuals in a big way. They are beautiful to look at, and support the 25 beehives he maintains. Zinnias, cosmos and sunflowers thrive in this home garden on a grand scale.

Gardener Extras

  1. An adult bee's diet is primarily made up of 3 types of food: honey, nectar and pollen.
  2. Honey bees usually forage on only one kind of flower in a single trip.
  3. Honey bees stuff pollen into baskets on their legs and use their tongues to suck up nectar.
