We will have a very limited number of overwintered national nucleus colonies.  These are last years queens which are from proven stock and good honey producers.  These are recommended for those with a bit more experience as will likely want to swarm this year (ideal for expansion) and will be at their strongest this year so will need to be ready for the honey flows.

All our nucleus colonies come as a five frame nucleus on National frames, this is provided in a sturdy reusable correx travelling box and is included as part of the package.

If interested and out of stock then please subscribe to this product and you will receive an email as soon as these become available.  Availability is based on the weather and will be released after we have managed to fully check them after spring.
