Bees arrive

Flowering starts and here come the bees – 40 triple hives this year. We place them in a central area where they are surrounded by Achacha trees, and are no more than 1.5km from the most distant tree. They fly up to two kilometres looking for pollen so we simplify their travel. And another visitor – this time from the UK – following on from the 29th International Horticulture Conference in Brisbane.
