Hi Guys

Does anyone know of a beek stockist in Wiltshire??

I could go for mail order, but as the stuff I want is pretty cheap but the postage makes it rather expensive (£19 + £9 postage!!)

Maisemore is the only close one I know but is still 100 mile+ round trip... and I need to take half a day off to get there during opening hours! :(

Cheers
Pete

16 a mix of Commercial, National, 14 x 12, Dadant and a Warre
Don't know if it still there but there used to be a supplier in Stockbridge Hants - Admin should know, I've been in France for the last 10 years so I'm a bit out of touch. Mike

Hi
I am in Wilts as well, depends what you want but I would definitely ring both places before travelling as they only stock items that sell so if your order is for something that is a slow seller it may pay to order.

PS Or find a friendly local beekeeper and add it to their next order, club together

Depending on what you are after , i noticed the other day that Whitehall Garden Centre nr Lacock was selling frames, wax sheets, queen excluders, feeders, skeps and a few other bits and bobs. Not a huge amount but a small selection.
