It depends on the type of flower, some they work straight away and others have to be nearly spent for the bees to like them. I think Rata would fall in the first category and Kowhai in the second. No idea about avocados, we can't grow them down here and apples the bees will work, but not their first choice....
My Avocado tree and Apple just started getting worked on. has anyone else noticed that it takes bees around a week to take notice from the first flower?
