hi, i’m based near winchester - so just up the road and looking forward to receiving my full flow hive this december!
I really need to gen up on beekeeping, so books ordered and frantically looking to join a club or meet up with a beekeeper that won’t dismiss my purchase.

Hi, Originally I was going to keep hives on the edge of the Avon valley flood-plain, but given the cost of the FlowHive, my plan is now to have it in a garden in Christchurch, which I believe is now merged with East Dorset.

How is your Flowhive doing ? I have a very healthy brood box,but my girls were a bit reluctant to go into the super - just in the last week they seem to have got the hang of it now.

@adrian My girls have filled my Flows to 1/3, then again then to 1/2 but each time they eat it - weather here has not been consistent - the Tilia/Lime/Lindens whichever you want to call them are just flowering so watch this space.

If we get a decent run of weather they will fill soon I hope
