When I first decided that I was going to make Cider our apple trees were in blossom. As I had not seen any Bees to pollinate the trees I decided to purchase two Bee Hives, one with Bees. The Bees only arrived four weeks ago and as it happened the Trees were well pollinated without the Bees I had purchased.

I had purchased the Hive and Bees from a large honey supplier in Shropshire who I believed to be reliable source so I didn’t bother to go and see what I was buying. What a mistake that was for when they were delivered I could not believe what I had been sent. The Bees didn’t need to go in and out in the hive through the normal entrance. The hives were so rotten they could have gone through the rot.
