Re: lack of bees
Not many of my rugosa roses have bright red hips the way they are
supposed to have. I had great bloom. Put lack of hips down to lack of
bees. Have been near Guelph for a couple of weeks where they have
beautiful rugosa hedges. Hedges are covered with scarlet hips.
Obviously plenty of bees the other side of Toronto.
