Abstract

A large number of herbs and commercial essential oil plants are members of the mint family, Lamiaceae (Tucker, 1986; Tucker and Lawrence, 1987). Many species in this family are also useful nectar sources for honeybees (Ayers et al., 1987; Crane, 1975; Pellett, 1947). Honey production may be an added benefit to the herb grower or seed producer.
