Do Bees Like Broccoli?

The question is, Do bees like broccoli?

The answer is, Yes!

For some reason the broccoli in our garden did not form nice tight heads this year so we never cut them. They eventually went to seed, and the little yellow flowers turned out to be very attractive to the bees!

I knew a beekeeper who purposely planted broccoli seeds near his hives to let them go to flower. They grow very easily, and as you found out, the bees love them!

I always plant broccoli for my bees. Since you can harvest it all year and let it go to flower late in the fall it is perfect for the bees when not much else is out there. They just love it! This would be a great post to share with my readers on my beekeeping blog hop. Check it out!
