Flowers for Bees in the Winter

I've recently been asked what are good plants to have flowering in the garden over winter for the bees.  It was a very good question!  It's good to have plants flowering in your garden all year around for the bees. Bees actually spend most of the time in their hives over the winter and eat the stores of honey they have collected over the summer time.  Having said that if it's a nice warm sunny winters afternoon they will pop out for a little while.  I'm not a gardener but have done a bit of research and it seems these are good flowers to have in your garden over the winter for bees:

  • Alyssum - white, pink, purple
  • Calendula - orange or yellow flowers
  • Candytuft
  • Salvia Blue Bedder
  • Rudbeckia
