    Oxalic and glycerine

    I think the way is to stick the legs of the staple down between frames as usual, but leave the "u" of the staple round rather than creased flat. I dunno how round it can be with 8mm of beespace between boxes but .....

    Not Karaka . Puka. Climbing broadleaf. Griselinia Sinclairii. Sometimes is an epiphyte. Not to be confused with Puka from the 3 Kings.

    Oxalic and glycerine

    Hmm. What I thought was willow dew may not be if it granulates in the comb. It still hasn't granulated in the jars apart from just around the edge at the top. First time I've had the stuff, can't think of what else it could be.

    A bit of oxalic would likely go a long way toward improving the taste of willow dew..
