Diamond Harbour


Recommended Posts

Anyone have hives on Banks Peninsula, particularly the Diamond Harbour area? Do you get an early honey yield from all the gums, ngaio, and succulents that are flowering?

 

I ask because the bees have been working hard on all the plants in Church Bay where our bach is. If it wasn’t for the drive I’d have 2 hives over here.

I can’t comment on your situation , but my hives that have access to gum flowers in the winter and spring do very well . They never cap it though . It all gets fed to expanding populations

Uh Huh....When I used to work for Uncle Arthur we ran bees all around the Bays from Lyttllton to Diamond harbour.

Beautifull spring build up.

 

When the east coast is having a beautiful spring build up we are having rubbish weather .

Just like now .
