Bee orders update

This week has given us the first opportunity to do a proper check inside some of the nucs.  The colonies are looking ok but the cold spells during March have meant that in most cases the Queens have only really started laying in the last week or so.   Even though many nucs have lots of bees, the brood area is still only a tiny patch over 2 or 3 frames.    Certainly a big difference compared to last year!   However, now Spring does appear to be here so the bees should start to expand as expected as the newer, younger bees start to hatch.   We are still on schedule for April but we would say another 4 weeks or so before they will be full size and ready to dispatch.   We have pencilled it in for week beginning 30th April but of course, if we can dispatch sooner, we will:
