At best you'll get multifloral honey with a bit of manuka nectar in it. That is not to say that planting nectar trees isn't helpful - bees will love it - but you wouldn't be able to call the honey manuka.

Plastic boards are 95% recycled plastic; probably the largest volume of recycled plastic, so if we want the plastic recycled someone has to buy the boards.
