25 kg bags from bookers delivered to the door, £16.00 a bag, not the cheapest but got through 15 gallons yesterday so bees are the most important, nothing for them round here at all

Mine are going balmy for clover, wild mint, Rosebay willow herb and Balsam... I was out with the camera on Sunday and there were bees on just about every patch of flowers I saw. They are not storing a great deal (about drawing even), but there is still a large amount of brooding going on.... still 8-10 frames of brood in my strongest hives.... IMHO, too early to feed in our part of the world.

Tesco home delivery have a special for new customers, if you order £50+ on first order you can get £10 off which works out to be £7 after the cheapest £3 delivery charge.
Still I have 30 x 2Kg bags being delivered tomorrow which worked out approx 52p per kilo.

Just in time as I am going through sugar like crazy emergency feeding my hives!
