Phacelia is a herbaceous plant with straight stems reaching 50 to 80 centimeters and with a powerful root system. It is an annual plant, very adaptable to any soil and climate characteristics, and does not require special care in its cultivation.
It grows well in all possible soils without the need to fertilize, does not need to be mowed, and does not require any systematic watering. The lack of pretensions, the ability to self-sow, and the lush flowering, often in stages, are among the virtues of Phacelia Tanacetifolia, which every beekeeper values highly.
It thrives in all geographical areas of our country and changes in climate do not affect it except for low winter temperatures.
Phacelia is most popular for its quality of high honey yield, which is why it is highly valued by beekeepers and honeycreepers. According to its norms, about 35 kilograms of quality honey can be obtained from only 1 decare of an area sown with Phacelia Tanacetifolii. Experience also shows that one acre of crops is sufficient for the capacity of one beehive.
Many of the beekeeping industries in our country, precisely because of this fact, prefer to sow their areas with Phacelia tanacetifolia in stages. Experienced beekeepers know that in this way they will ensure a longer flowering period of the sown area and a longer fertile pasture for the bees.
Blooms on Phacelia Tanacetifolia follow 40 to 45 days after you sow the plant's seeds and are pale blue and pale purple. Sowing is carried out in the spring between March and May on well-cultivated and deeply worked soil, although in principle Phacelia grows on all types of soil known in our country and in any climate.
The seeds are sown in rows with distances of about 20 centimeters between them at depths of 2 to 3 centimeters in the ground, then the crops are rolled. It is also allowed to mix the sowing with sand in proportions of 1 to 3, and the sowing rate allows you to sow 70 to 125 square meters with 100 grams of Phacelia seeds.
Perhaps the most important trait after honeydew for Phacelia Tanacetifolia is that this plant has the ability to self-sow annually. In addition, the honey flower is also valued for the fact that it nourishes and ennobles the soils on which it grows and protects the other plantations in these areas from pests.
