Food sources for bees in a winter garden

Bees find a great food source in this bush laden with flowers  full of nectar [smells like honey] and pollen. C flowers in winter when there are few other flowers in my garden providing food for bees.

Food sources for bees in winter mean they are strong and healthy to pollinate fruit tree blossoms in early spring.

Check there are food sources available all year so bees are ready when needed for pollinating our crops.
