Bee Flowers – October

Not much for the bees this month!

The gorse is in flower – again. The main flowering time for Ulex europaeus is March to June but it will also flower sporadically in winter.

Another species of gorse present in Ireland is U.gallii or Dwarf Furze which flowers from July to September. Between the two of them they manage to give the impression that the gorse is always in flower.
