I like the approack that the late great Hugh Falkus had when discouraging people from fishing his bat on the Tweed, simple sign with but two words - the second being OFF!Thank you for clarifying that. I'd been told that it was better to phrase it as "advice" than as a warning. Is there a better way to do it?
Please don't: it's a non-native monumental nuisance that may be useful to pollinators but looks bleak when the leaves drop and will give you work to get rid when established. The runners root as they lie, so it spreads easily and can travel 40ft a year.russian vine" will do the trick
I am.I think you're wrong there.
Very invasive pest. Not known as the ‘mile a minute’ plant for nothing. Better off with clematis montana which at least looks nice. Or ivy…..If you want to cover it rapidly a "russian vine" will do the trick, but can be a bit *too* vigorous if it can climb onto anything else
Public liability insurance doesn’t cost much. Our local Bee Keepers Association gives it a part of membership. Just as a back up Might be an idea.Hi All,
I keep my bees in a private field, no right of way through field and access via a padlocked gate. The hives are in a fenced off area (stock proof fencing) within the field, and you need to go through another gate to get to them.
I don’t have any warning signs, as the other people entitled to access the field know about my bees.
Anyone got any views / advice around whether I should have signs to warn trespassers?
