  • Up and buzzing

    Ian LeGros on 29 Jun 2011 at 09:50 AM

    The bees at Hyde Hall came through the winter ok, one colony was considerable weaker than the other, but with the lovely warm spring it has more or less managed to catch up.

    The colonies have certainly kept us on our toes - they appreciated the warmth of the sun from around mid February to Mid May and foraged well on the Oil Seed Rape. Now is a quiet time for all bees at the moment (June) known to beekeepers as the June gap. July is the usually the peak time for bee forage also unfortunately for swarming. Honey from the Hyde Hall bees should be in the gift shop in July

  • The last of the snow

    Ian LeGros on 02 Jan 2011 at 04:44 PM

    The snow is still with us in three or four heaps where it was cleared from the main paths and car park and I am now finding  myself waing for spring already especially with Christmas just out of the way, my thoughts of this are spurred on by the fact the evenings are drawing out already, yes they really are. By the way Happy New Year.

    We actually fared quite well plant wise despite the weather just losing a few branches of a Pine Tree in the Robinson Garden and twigs here and there on certain more britle evergreens.
