Different pollens from different plants / trees cause tastes to be different.

Rape Seed will produce a honey that "crystalizes" quickly, so Bee Keepers have to remove it from the hives very quickly.

Lavender Honey is produced from lavender plants.

Lime Trees also produces different flavoured honey.

The different honey's will be different in colour. However it is very difficult to produce honey just from one particular plant. Tens of thousands of bees will explore your local area up to about a three mile radius around your hive.

Tip: Have a bird bath with a few stones on it as Bees need water. Bees are not naturally aggressive, but a lack of water can induce an aggressive behaviour.

Good luck with your hive. If you need any help be sure to contact your local Bee Keeping Association. I'm sure they'll be only too pleased to help.
