There has been manuka in flower pretty much continuously for the last three months on SH 1 between Albany and Silverdale, and elsewhere. Useless to bees because of the ambient temperature. Elsewere in Auck, still coming into flower. It is an area of many and varied micro-climates.

I wouldn’t look I wouldn’t look at the flowers next to the road. They just get heat from the road. It should only flower for 2-6 weeks

flowering depends on what type. they can have different times. also there is large amount of planted manuka about which can vary greatly.

however just because it flowers doesn't mean you get anything. spring weather here is temperamental, there can be competing sources and there is tons and tons of competing beeks.

i'ts not a good manuka aera and with the new rules i don't know how much of it will even pass.

Some areas within the Auckland region have been flowering since August, and have probably peaked now and starting to wane.  Whereas in other area's manuka is just starting to bud up, so it is very dependent on microclimates in each area, manuka type, location and weather.

In the boondocks, the occasional specimen is months away from flowering.
