If you are unable to travel to a course then I would join your local group and at the next meeting try and link up with a mentor.

They should be able to sort you out with a Nuc as well.

Also we have a few threads with some excellent book recommendations.

Its a great time of year to be starting out.

Hi Ade


Search the members list for Mike Lane and PM him. He should be able to sought you out bees/hive at reasonable cost, he is local and may even let you come and get in his way for a day:svengo:
