Abstract: Honey and wax, the products of bees derived from bee-hives have enormous curative properties. Honey production varies with the quality and quantity of nectar present in different flowering plants. Bees also never like all the plants for taking nectar. They generally select the bright coloured and scented flowers having sufficient nectar. For the management of bees and getting honey throughout the year bee keepers can select plants according to their flowering season. The mobile bee-keeping boxes may be placed in the selected fields through out the year in rotation during the period of anthesis. Some plants suitable for this purpose have been enumerated below along with their flowering season.
