Hancock's Bee Seed Mix - Our Bee Seed mixture is a combination of a bee's favorite pollen & nectar producing flowers. This Bee feed mix includes, red clover, yellow sweet clover, big bee berseam clover, white clover and buckwheat. Buckwheat produces the darkest honey and is a summer reseeding annual. Buckwheat has a 55-75 day life cycle and will reseed itself the majority of the time. Our red clover is a reseeding perennial that is preferred by native pollinators and bumble bees. Yellow sweet clover and Big Bee are favorites among bee keepers and gardeners for their growing habitats and abundant yellow and white flowers. Both are biennial clovers that will produce light, mild honey. White Dutch clover is a shorter perennial clover and will bloom on and off during the summer months.
