Following on from the sucess of the bird boxes we installed through the Winter (three-quarters of them have just-hatched baby birds in them) we're very proud to tell you that here at Superplants we have taken our first steps into becoming beekeepers!
Our first hive has been put in place at our Nursery at Sigwells, near Sherborne, Dorset, and we very much hope that it is the first of many. Our hive has eleven slides and we hope that our colony will grow to inhabit five of them.
Bee numbers in this country, and around the world, are declining at an alarming rate so every hive is valuable.
