I receive a newsletter from the Kangaroo Island Beekeepers Association and here is an extract:

Broombush and Scarlet Bottlebrush are flowering but any nectar flow is extremely light and beekeepers are searching for ways to keep their hives strong for the Sugar Gum in 6 weeks time.
Fortunately Sugar Gum does appear well budded and Cup Gum has also started to put out buds.Cup Gum buds take approx. 3 months to flowering so we can all hope for an extended flow from autumn into winter.

Keep these people in mind when you buy honey.
