Hi there everyone!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Nikki and I live in Wicklow, Ireland, I would love to learn how to start my own hive.

Hopefully I’m not too late to start this year?

Any guidance would be most appreciated.

Thank you,



Hello and welcome to the Flow forum!

I am afraid that you are too late to start this year, unless you buy an established hive from somebody who is retiring. The best way to find something like that is to join a local bee club (every country usually has lots, and I know that there are lots in Ireland). When you become a member, you can also ask about beekeeping courses and getting a mentor. That way you could get some experience this year, even if you can’t start your own hive right now.

Really hope you decide to continue with this hobby, it is truly fascinating!
