Part of the gardening for wildlife, ecology, habitat management and meadow work Gareth and his team carry out, beekeeping is one of the services provided.
Double broods and additional supers reflecting the productivity of some of the colonies.
Some hives moved to private estates near Bitton. Above the River Boyd with Lime tree avenues, old hedgerows, floodplains and some afternoon dappled shade. Very happy bees.
Will have to add extra supers to these new colonies soon. Maybe get enough honey to steal some this autumn. As long as the bees have enough for their winter stores.
