Honey Bee Flower Mix is a blend of 50% annual and 50% perennial flowers that provide nectar and pollen to honey bees. These flowers are proven favorites of honey bees in our gardens and will provide bee forage all season long. It is ideal for honey beekeepers and others interested in honey bee health. This mix can be used in garden beds, borders, and other maintained areas. It is widely adapted to all areas of the United State and southern Canada.

The best value in Honey Bee Flower mix on the internet!
If you shop carefully you will see that other suppliers try to mask the actual value by selling very few seeds, adding carrier agent or lowering the coverage rate. A lot of companies actually don’t even disclose the fact that a considerable portion of what you are buying is a carry agent or “inert matter”. Sometimes what you buy is as little as 10% actual seed.
Our Honey Bee Flower Mix has ONE FULL NET POUND OF SEED, covers 3,500 SQUARE FEET, has an average of 365,000 seeds per pound! Inside of every package you will find two bags: Part 1 is the actual seed mix – one full net pound. Part 2 is a separately packaged carrier agent to help you disburse and sow the seed. This means our wildflower mixes are a tremendous value when compared to other flower mixes on the internet!
