Companion Planting

Companion Planting is an age old practice of Planting Plants within close proximity which will Benefit other Plants, either by giving off a scent or chemical that will repel harmful insects.They may also be grown to entice Beneficial Insects that will help rid your plants of Nature's Nasties. Another way these plants may help is by returning goodness back to the soil. Many of these plants may also be used to make Teas to spray your plants with, or the leaves used in the Compost as an activated.See More

Bee Help

Posted on November 8, 2015 at 17:39 8 Comments

Hi

Would anyone be able to supply me with a couple of topbar brood frames? Alternatively I can cutout a langstroth frame to fit.

My colony is not doing well with the current queen not laying any eggs for months. I am hoping to get a couple of brood frames hopefully with larvae to kickstart the colony.

Queen Bee

My bees keep creating queen cells and replacing the queen although some may have swarmed that I didn't see. The current queen is yet to lay larvae so hopefully she lays soon. It may be I have to get a new queen in as so far the hive keeps replacing the queen.
