Romsey District, including the lower Test Valley south from Broughton and Stockbridge and eastwards to Chandlers Ford,
provides a wide variety of essential forage for our bees.
Field beans, oilseed rape and some linseed are now being grown particularly in the Kings Somborne area
and on the Broadlands estate south of Romsey, while sainfoin and clover are still occasionally seen.
The cultivated home gardens of Romsey and the villages play a leading role in our honey production
helped by the many varieties of nectar and pollen producing trees in the area.
