Tuesday 26th February—Maximizing your honey crop

Craig y Don Community Centre
A talk by Joanna Schup, Master beekeeper, Shropshire BKA. Welcome coffee and cake from 7.20pm. Meeting starts at 7.40pm.

  • Why does my neighbour get more honey than me?
  • Why does my honey cost about £20 per jar to produce?
  • How do I plan for the honey flow?
  • What are my potential honey crops? Sycamore/OSR/blackberry/himalayan balsam/heather?
  • How do I prepare my bees to work these crops for honey?

This new talk will get you thinking about your beekeeping in a different way. Or maybe you’re happy with just half a super of honey per hive…
