Backyard bee keeping in Seattle/Cascadia

For all these years, we have been focusing on other aspects of home (1910 Major remodel) and edible landscaping for ourselves and others. We have worked with other people to install beds for other people, but have never done it our own home.

In our prior living arrangement, our landlord had Bob Redmond and Urban Bee Co come out and do the tending, but this year are most likely going to do it ourselves, with the help our our neighbor-mentor.  Because we love to share information and help bees we wanted to share some resources with you.

Besides our neighbor helping out, our guiding bookis: Keeping Bees: All You Need to Know to Tend Hives, Harvest Honey, & More by Ashley English.     Here is a list of other books that seem useful.

We also have Mother Earth News website, which is pretty informative.

Then, we found this cool guide for Bee Plants for our Lowland Pacific NW –>PacificLowlandrx8 bee plants.

Please note: we carry many of these in our nursery. Check out our online store.   If not yet added to our store, then please come find us           at the farmers market or at the nursery!
