5 JUNE 2019 AT 6.00 PM Sweet Bee

7th Apiary Meeting hosted by Hagley & Stourbridge Branch

Prepare for the June Gap...

After you have taken your honey off, and Oil Seed Rape honey needs taking off on time, otherwise it sets and can't be extracted, you need to make sure the bees don't starve.

In the middle of June most of the early plants such as  apple blossom and Chestnut have finished flowering and the next set of flowers, such as Lime tree haven't started.  If the bees have no honey, hugh colonies will starve very quickly.

As always the meeting will be cancelled if the weather is unsuitable for opening beehives. Beginners please bring wellies and Marigolds.

The jobs today are:

DIRECTIONS

The branch apiary is located on the Stourbridge to Kidderminster road at Iverley.

From Kidderminster take A451 signposted Stourbridge, cross over the staggered junction of the Caunsall to Churchill road and the apiary  is in 600 metres on your left, look out for the tree covered mound of earth.
