Mark Read, senior landscape designer at Natural Habitats, and winner of numerous landscape design awards over the last few years, knows the importance of plant selection in creating gardens of distinction. One of Mark's favourites is the tropical garden. His resort style tropical gardens are created for a seamless balance between nature and a residential living space.
As hive numbers climb to in excess of half a million nationally, it is becoming increasingly apparent that there is a need for good wintering/spring sites to successfully winter bees and provide sufficient forage for them to build up in the spring. The task of successful beekeeping is to build up hives in the spring to around 60,000+ bees per hive by the time the honey flow comes on usually in November or December, in order to gather a good honey crop and provide pollination services where needed. Over the last 30 years, alot of valuable bee forage has given way to intense dairy production, riparian clearance, and weed clearance of such weeds as gorse, broom and some willows.
