Ooooh a hive!
Now I have bee envy, Patsy
There are loads of local beekeeper associations dotted around the country. One of my friends is a member and said she did a short course with them and continues to get lots of help and advice. She's out in Kent.
In London there's the North London Bee Association and they sell their various honeys from the area, to the public. It's lovely! I buy a pot now and again, as it's meant to help with hay fever if taken regularly before the season - bit like a homeopathic treatment.
My daughter loves plants and animals - that bit, at least, I got right
