I have a captured swarm from one of my hives, almost free to a good home. 99% sure Queen is on-board too. They are nice placid bees, perfect for suburban settings.
They are currently residing in a cardboard cat carrier box. If you don't mind paying for that ($10) or replacing with same, they're all yours...
FYI these are perfect swarm holders/Nucs
Pick up only, from Devonport
Hay is not the same as straw.
Hay is mown grass where straw is a bi-product of wheat or barley harvesting. If there are weeds amongst a straw bale I would hazard a guess that the proportion would be extremely low < 1%.
Barley straw is a fantastic mulch.
I wouldn't have hay anywhere near my property.
And Falloons is a cavern of wonder and is cheaper than most other rural suppliers. For instance a 25 kg bag of lime is the same price as a 5kg bag at the garden center. A few of you could get together and buy some products and split them into amounts you can use . ? .
Just my 2ḉ
Just be careful buying hay at Falloons, I got some "lucerne" that was advertised as specially for gardeners and it was absolutely full of weed seeds I ended up burning it!
There is an article about John Pearce in the latest OrganicNZ magazine.
When are you thinking of going to see John's farm?
Hi folks I've just joined Ooooby - North Shore. It's a rain filled day in Beach Haven. Luckly I got some vege seedlings planted out yesterday and a lot of mulching with straw.
I'm still battling with weeds that I didn't keep on top of over winter, so still a big job ahead of me.
