  Bee plants grown in and around Bangladesh Agricultural University campus were identified on the basis of the frequency of visits by the worker bees to the flowers of these plants. All together 29 bee plants were identified in "honey flow season" (December to March). Nine of these plants did not provide pollen and five of them did not provide nectar. Bee plants were 34 in number in "dearth period" (April to July). Of these, 15 plants did not provide pollen and 12 did not supply nectar. Only four bee plants were identified in "extended period" (August to November). Most of them provide only pollen. There were five bee plants, which provide pollen and nectar throughout the year. It was found that on an average drumstick honey contained the highest moisture (26.48%) followed by mustard (25.72%) and black berry (21.94%). The lowest moisture (18.50%) was found in litchi honey. Highest and lowest reducing sugars were obtained in mustard honey and blackberry honey. On the otherhand, litchi honey contained highest (5.50%) non-reducing sugar and mustard honey contained the lowest (4.69%). Total sugar was the highest (72.70%) in mustard honey followed by litchi (70.20%). Ash content was highest (0.54%) in Drumstick honey followed by blackberry and litchi honey.
