It flowers every two to five years in autumn and produces good pollen and nectar for bees.
Ribbon Gums are found widely in the wetter parts of south-eastern Australia from Qld down to Tas and SA.
The flavours of single varietal honey reflect a plant source and its unique flowers, pollen and nectar. Our single varietal honeys are a true reflection of nature with each plant species creating distinctly different colours, tastes and textures of honey.
“Our aim is to educate people on the diversity of uses for honey and the fact 65% of Australia’s agricultural produce is pollinated by honeybees. This reveals just how important they truly are to our food security.”
