All about honeybees

Hello I would love to be on your podcast. Something a little different. I have developed a rather unique beehive nest box beehive. And system of beekeeping. Developed primarily for my own investigation of honeybees I have evolved a system like no other. Resulting in bees that are less stressed. Thus happier and healthier. Hope to hear from you soon.

Fabulous podcast

I have recently decided to start gardening and growing veg. I was looking for a podcast and they all seemed a bit staid and for older people. This one is great, so much information and enthusiasm. Really enjoying it . Well done!

Not for me. Sponsored by a lawn mower company.
