The last Thornes sale I attended I came away with a box of OA.

I seem to have everything if not 10 of everything.

Looking at their sale prices for the hives i think it would still work out cheaper to buy the bees on a budget hive. As by the time you get the foundation and frames I think it would work out more.

I am looking for more frames for my Langstroth supers. They look cheap @?34.50 for 50 (seconds).

I don't understand whether it would be better to get:
A) langstroth shallow
B) Manley 1 5/8"
or C) Manley 1 3/4"

What are the differences?I would want ones that self space. Please advise.

JIm,
I have bought online from them before, so they sent me an e-mail, which I think is copied above, but it loses all its formatting and therefore much of the sense. Send me a PM with an e-mail address and I will forward to you.

PS Sorry talking rubbish! You posted teh e-maIL! checked e-mail it says the info will appear on web tommorow.

Thornes for foundatton? smiles.

Check out Peter Kembles prices. Also be aware the cell depth on his kit is deeper and the bees set to on it very readily.

Just done a Google and I think this may be the site:
http://www.kemble-bees.com/

All prices seem to be inclusive of vat.

I like the look of this website,thanks for the link PH,they also sell Queens.
