Many of my customers have said that using pure local honey through out the year on a regular basis has helped their hay fever symptoms during the allergy season. Try some and see if it helps.
Some of the bees I manage are helping to pollinate local fruit growers trees. Pears, apples and cherries being the main varieties. The hives are sited within the orchards ready for spring time blossoms. Everybody benefits.
Please plant bee friendly plants in your garden. Early spring flowering plants such as crocus and snowdrops provide early pollen source for the bees. Dandelions are a great resource for bees please leave a patch for them to grow on your lawn. Thanks.
