    Just getting started in bee keeping utilizing a Flow Hive. Purchased nuc a week ago from a local apiary to start the process. Hope to add more next spring providing things go well this year.

    Welcome from Georgia, I am a second year newbee and also started off with a FlowHive. No luck with it last year, they didn't want to have anything with it. I am hoping for better results this year. Let use know how yours works out.

    Thanks for the report. Will do. The nuc i bought was already producing honey and brood, so I'm hoping that I produce this year. I was fortunate there was an apiary close that offered frame swaps. Will keep everyone posted on the results.

    not to rain on your parade with the flow hives, but there are plenty of you tube videos that show that particular hive doesnt do too well in most climates in the USA..it does best will a climate that is warm all year round..
