Nectar Party

SEMO Nectar Party - Seed Collection

The Nectar Party – honey pasture/forage seeds blends. The goal for an optimal blend was obvious – to provide maximum nectar and pollen production throughout the entire growing season. Nectar Party is the name of our new seed collection of honey pasture/forage blends. Our seed blends for butterflies and bumblebees have been designed for home gardeners. Our blends for bees meet the needs of both professional beekeepers and hobbyists. Bees have always traditionally belonged to the staff at SEMO. We currently have ninety bee hives here at our facilities, so we can say that we know something about the bees. Our bee pasture is blended based on our own experiences. Some months are less productive for nectar and pollen than others. These critical periods occur in early spring, late summer and autumn. A properly assembled blend must provide bee forage even in these weaker seasons.
