Bee bee tree seedlings and seeds.

I've got Bee Bee tree seedlings and seeds for sale. These trees provide an excellent source of nectar yielding bloom from July well into August. This late bloom is what makes these trees so valuable to both bees and and beekeepers. I have four mature trees and standing under them in August the hum from the bee activity is just tremendous. I have freshly collected, cold treated (stratified) seeds ($10 a pack, about 100 seeds.) and a good supply of dormant seedlings as well. Now is a good time to plant dormant seedlings, it's common practice right through February. The dormant seedlings are shipped and planted bare-root.
Bare-root trees roots will grow after the trees are planted. Those few extra months of root growth give the trees an edge over container trees planted in spring.
The trees establish more quickly. Contact me at John677x@yahoo.com with any questions and for sizes and prices on what I have available. These white flowers bloom in late summer and the bees really love them. The trees get over 100 softball sized flower clusters. It's not uncommon to see as many as 20 bees on a single cluster! The red "berries" come after the bees have done their work. This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 727x483.This image has been resized.

It's native to Korea and hardy in Zone 4 to 8.

Hi DW, all the gray areas on this map (University of Fla.) show the trees hardy zone. As Paquebot mentioned, they are hardy in zones 4-8. There are a few spots in Colorado where they may need more winter care to help them in their 1st few years such as mulching around roots and burlap wrap perhaps. I am confident they would do well in most all of Colorado, they are good winter hardy trees.

Lovely tree. How is the honey?

Maura, search comes up with "real fruity flavor and is very pale and clear, or white." Offhand, can't think of any other honey with that description.

Maura, Martin is correct with those characteristics. I would only add sweet to the description. The trees are in the citrus (Rutaceae) family, so this may be where the fruity flavor comes in.

Do the seeds germinate easily?

The seeds are not hard to get started. The cold treatment really boosts germination. I send along good tips I have learned through trail and error with these seeds and I guarantee good, viable seeds. I am always happy to lend advice on the trees.

I still have stratified (cold treated) Bee Bee tree seeds available as of 03/07/2014. They are $10 a pack with shipping included. (USA) Now is a great time to get some seeds started indoors and get some extra growing time in before planting outside in spring. The seeds aren't hard to get sprouted and grow inside. I send along good tips I have learned through trial and error with them. Contact me here or at John677x@yahoo.com with any questions.

I have Bee Bee tree seedlings available as of 5-22-14. The seedlings I have now are on just beginning to leaf out nicely after spending a very cold winter outside with no extra protection. They are good, tough stock with nice woody stems. As availability and size will fluctuate, please contact me for current info on what I have either through a PM here or at John677x@yahoo.com. I do have Bee Bee tree seeds available as well. The seed is stratified (cold treated) and only requires a 24 hr soak in water prior to sowing. Pricing for seeds is $10 a pack (about 100 seeds) with shipping included in USA.

Bee Bee tree starter pack

I have new starter packs available! The pack includes four 1-2" seedlings in small peat containers and one pack (about 100) of stratified (cold treated) seeds. The total with Priority USPS shipping (2-3 day delivery) included, anywhere in U.S.A. is $30. If you just want seedlings, the total is $25 shipped. These small sprouts can be grown through the rest of this season and either planted outside in the fall or kept inside over winter while they go dormant. The seeds can be started anytime and cared for the same way. I do have larger seedlings available as well. As availability and size on the larger seedlings will fluctuate, please contact me for current info on what I have either through a PM here or at john677x@yahoo.com with orders or any questions.
