I started beekeeping last year and will tell you how I started, hope that will give you guidance on how to start.
1) I viewed all the beekeeping videos posted by FlowHive on YouTube especially the Beginners with Louise
2) Watched other YouTube videos with beekeeping
3) Went to beginners course with the local beekeeping club in my area
Before I started the course I knew at this time I was ready to have bees, so I placed an order for Nuc with a local beekeeper.
I was very fortunate that the beekeeper gave me a very personalized service, I left my Flow Brood Hive with him and he let his bees build their colony in there. Once he had a new queen and she was laying well, he called me to pick up the hive. I felt very supported by the whole club.
This year I plan to have 3/4 hives so I don't stress of losing the hive over winter.
I hope this helps
