Do bees know when a flower is dead?
Hello, sorry it probably sounds like a stupid question because of course they do? It's just that my catmint has been buzzing wildly since the start of June and I keep on thinking to myself to cut it back (and maybe encourage more flowers?) as now the flowers are looking well past their best but the bees keep on coming back so I don't want to chop away at a valuable resource to them. The flowers almost look like dry flowers! It's crazy. Advice appreciated, thanks.
