Hi Derek!

Hi Derek!

 

The best thing to do would be to join your local association because they would normally have either nucs (baby hives) or may even know some one who is retiring and have full hives for sale, you can find your local association here...

You also have others on this forum selling packages

 

You can get rose hives from Thornes or if your handy at the DIY, google "Rose hive planes" and you might be able to find them. I asked the fella that made them and he sent me the plans!
