Bee witched - you and I obviously live at opposite ends of the spectrum! Perhaps sheldonii is the way to go. We tried betanicafolia (I think - spelling probably dodgy here!) And you got the seed for free. Maybe I should look out for one at the GC. I am hoping that last year's pitiful honey showing was down to the bees being moved 200 miles in the middle of the season and having to re-align themselves, also the queens being in their first year. One of my hives seems to be marching forwards aggressively this spring, but I am worried about the other one. When I went to check on whether they needed more fondant icing about a month ago, the crown board had got stuck in the roof, and as I lifted the roof, it dropped out, so I keep wondering if I squished the queen! Need to go look when I can get round to putting a new zip in my space suit. But we do have lovely crumbly dark soil that hasn't been waterlogged, full of well rotted manure, into which I ventured some carrot, lettuce, coriander and rocket seeds yesterday (am going to cloche them - realise it's a bit early for the latter two).
