    Yes, British Beefeeds are still here, DR - but they sell Apiinvert, not Ambrosia. I think you have to contact Lyle directly to find out about prices. Our association used to sell Ambrosia, but I don't know whether they bought it directly from Nordzucker or from where.

    Sad that this guy has lost so much syrup through vandalism.

    I don't see the need to exaggerate numbers though. Did he really import American syrup - is that what Mann Lake UK supplied?

    12 hives ? That's a lot of American corn syrup

    Yes, although it was Thursday.

    Not sure I should really say what I think on here though.

    I caught a snippet from a food program but thought it was on Sat. To get a flavor of what Plan Bee get up to; here is some text from their web site where they explain how their services help the grouse shooting estates.

    "Plan Bee offers a natural alternative for protecting the heather, gorse, broom and rowan, thereby helping to maintain grouse and hen-harriers’ food source and habitat.

    The hives will be removed at the end of June and we charge on a per-acre basis. (This trouble-shooting pollination is already common practice in the US, particularly with almond trees that have a three-day pollination window. In the UK, Plan Bee is probably three to four years ahead of the game."

    That's right. You remove the bees from the estates before the heather flowers. There must be something I am missing here -actually, reading the website does make me wonder about trading standards and advertising regulation.

    There were some novel concepts
    Apparently it was Thursday right enough driving back from Edinburgh
    I was at Thornes sale on Friday and back in Edinburgh on Sat so got out of sync
    I hadn't heard much about plan B before (I thought they were a pop group)
