Spring Honey​

​is usually a composition of different wild flowers and in fact it is frequently labelled as multiflora honey.  In Spring honey bees collect nectar mainly from wild flowers like white thistle, sulla, borage, dandelion, wild mustard and many other plus some crops and ornamental/fruit trees, especially citrus trees.
