Honey Bee

Courtesy of lots of these small fellas, at long last a great Irish summer, the abundant flora and the care of Alan there will be a glut of honey this year as the two onsite hives were filled to the brim.

Earlier this week Alan and his partner prepared the hives to remove the ‘supers’ before coming back to remove them.

As you can see they were filled to the brim with about 140 lb’s of honey, off they went where Alan will be extracting, flitering it and then filling jars so it will be ready to sell later this year. Not a bad return for providing them with some lovely nectar from the garden centre.

For anyone interested in keeping bees watch out for our events where we cover bee keeping or alternatively check out the Federation of Irish Beekeepers Association

Please note that The Secret Garden is no longer operating as a garden centre, we are now offering floristry services, wedding flowers, flowers for funerals and other occassions. We also host courses and other events in gardening and floral displays and Sarah is available to do talks for organisations and at events all over Munster.

    1. Thanks Dee. Alan is really quite excited about the honey this year and can’t wait to taste it as there will be so many influences through it this year.
