Can you explain to me then what does?
I thought it might be something like that. Also wondered if the stress from last Summer plus the mild Autumn allowing recovery triggered increased flowering.2007, 2015 and now 2023, as years where combs were stuffed with Hawthorn pollen and nectar but I would say this year has out done the other two, the farm has loads of Hawthorn and it's been spectacular.
Wet, miserable starts to Spring seems a common theme, I just hope the rest of this year doesn't follow suit as they turned into wet Summers
Takes a while to granulate but it doesn't go rock hard.Here we're surrounded by acres of OSR as far as the eye can see so unfortunately probably missed out on the once in a decade hawthorn.
As an aside, does hawthorn honey have a similar tendency to granulation?
