Sorry we've been quite the last few weeks but we've been super busy getting all the orders out to everyone.   The majority of the overwintered nucs are now done/scheduled for collections and we've just emailed those of you with package bee orders.  Emails should be with you by now. Next on the list is the Summertime nucs and we'll be emailing you all very shortly about those, they are coming along very nicely.

So it get to this time of the year and the questions start arriving, such as 'how are the bees doing?' and 'When can i collect my bees?' so it's time to get you all an update.
