Welcome to the online floral calendar for Canada's beekeepers. Using the following search link, you can quickly determine which plants are in bloom and the value of each blooming plant as nectar or pollen resources for bees.

Floral calendars are an essential tool for beekeepers. They provide information on the yearly cycles in the flow of nectar for honey production and availability of pollen. This helps beekeepers maximize honey production while maintaining colony health.
