I'll probably have some left over this season - will it keep or shall I freeze it?

Hi Peter

If you have it why not use it, most have some colonies/nuc's that would benefit from a feed all through the season.

my 12.5kg slabs from Bako have best before dates of late 2010 - so fondant seeled will last.

Not much left over? Dissolve and feed as syrup.

A lot? As Heather and others(?) say.

Just don't use it just to get rid. Might cause other problems.
