Hope you’ll be at Craig y Don on Tuesday 26th April for Pete Barrar’s talk on the National Beekeeping Centre for Wales at 7.20pm for a 7.40pm start.
The new Beekeeping Centre HQ will be at the Bodnant Welsh Food Centre, now taking shape in the old Furnace Farm near Tal y Cafn. Come along and find out how you can be part of it. Bring and Buy Sale in the car park before the talk. Do bring any unwanted beekeeping equipment to the sale.
I was pleased to lose only two hives out of 24 in the cold winter. I’d expected heavy losses from isolation starvation (click for info). Now the bees are busy filling honey supers. Be in time with your supers. They can soon fill a super with sycamore honey.
