Which is the best Leptosermum scoparium for producing Manuka honey?
I am thinking of debunking to S Devon and wish to grow some Manuka bushes in max 1.5acre field on gentle slope. I am a novice in this field, but feel that it is something I could do with some growing advice.

On plant Leptospermum scoparium



I like your idea Weeone :-)
As far as i know any of the leptospermums will be suitable and a mild area in south Devon should be fine to give you a good acreage to 'farm'.

Single varieties have a higher nectar content than double varieties, but may be harder to find.
