This week we are talking about Springing into Bee Season 2017, Evolving Bees, a great herb has been discovered and Are you Getting Enough? This is Episode One Hundred and Twelve of our beekeeping podcast here in lil ol’ New Zealand.
Here at kiwimana we are Beekeepers who want to help those interested in Bees and Beekeeping by providing simple yet informative starter course. It will give you a great overview of the ‘world of Beekeeping’
A little update from Margaret on the Apiary and whats blooming at kiwimana HQ.
We were asked the other day, What do you use for Bee Smoker Fuel? We answer that and also discuss coffee sacks.
Yesterday we had our first “bee buddies” meeting at kiwimana HQ. It was a good day for it with no rain! ….Yay! Turn-out was less than expected, with 3 out of 8 expected arriving, each of our buddies arriving at separate times so we were able to talk with each of them.
This is a guest post from Frank Schuurman, who is a retired nurseryman living in West Auckland. Frank’s post is about the Australian plants currently flowering in New Zealand. These are great plants to help out the bees over winter…so get planting :D!!!
