Even though I have 3 acres of clover, I still agree with you. 1 acre is not enough to make a significant increase in honey yield.with only an acre to play with you really are wasting your time and I'd be surprised that even if you planted the whole of it with Borage, or even OSR it would have any significant impact on your yield
If I did my math correct, bees can cover ~2000 acres in a radius of 1 mile from the hive. This must be considered when trying to improve honey yields.
At the same time, it can be fun and interesting to have a flower plot. Just don't expect it to make a huge difference in overall nectar harvest.
