Methods

We will design and install plantations of flowering trees and shrubs with well-balanced flowering calendars for different types of farms.

We will demonstrate to farmers, councils, and the public how to plant superior bee forage plants to ensure a steady supply of pollen by:

  1. Expanding the Master database of bee forage plants with new information on protein content of pollen and a collation of data on flowering time and plant uses 
  2. Creating six new demonstration farms and developing Model Bee Plantation Designs to cover the bee colony life cycle throughout the year
  3. Producing guidelines and tools so that farmers and others can customise bee forage plantation designs to suit the purposes of their farm operations.
