Once again the big flush of dandelions is upon us as early as it was last year and about 3 weeks earlier than it always used to be back in the days when I actually made wine with them.  Last year at this time I speculated whether early swarming was related to early dandelions and a little over a week later, on the 8th April I heard of the first swarm of the year.  Better get the kit ready!


About chrissladesbeeblog

I have been keeping bees since 1978 and currently have about a dozen hives. I am a member of the BBKA where for many years I represented Dorset at the Annual Delegates' Meeting. I am the co-author (with Dave MacFawn of of S. Carolina) of "Getting the Best from Your Bees" and am working on a book of my own poems : "Bee People".
