What's Flowering: Sydney NSW
« on: March 06, 2019, 02:18:48 am »
Hi everyone, newbee here.  Just trying to track what's flowering in the area and whether or not it's nectar/pollen rich.  I've started taking photos and compiling a Google Photos album which stores location and time of the photo, which will hopefully give me a rough record of flowering time of the larger trees etc in the Inner West Area over the year.

Have seen that Paperbark and a few other Eucs have finally started flowering in and around Newtown/Camperdown.  What are you noticing?  I've heard its been pretty barren the last few weeks around the area!

Feel free to add pics if you have any of flowering plants.  If taken with a smartphone, date/location data will be automatically saved with it - Sydney Flowering Timeline https://photos.app.goo.gl/Fq3WUbZXiN8jyuf6A

"Smart Phone" - we don't even have phone reception here:)
" Bee friendly" by Mark Leech is a good source of info. Also " The honey Flora of NSW"

I got my copy from  the Rural Industries and Research Development Corporation for about $ 60.
Being in a city you will find that yor climate is probably quite similar to SE Qld

Mate being in town everyone waters their garden so you should have heaps of multifloral honey all at their expense. Enjoy. Never a drought in town always something flowering.
Cheers
