Beekeeping; From A to Bee, a diary of a first year beekeeper

This is a quick synopsis of my book; From A to Bee. It is a diary account of my first year of beekeeping and has been published by Summersdale. It is a light…

Hey Andrew, thanks for that, really appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the read. It was certainly fun writing it (on reflection!)

Andrew Brown says:

Great book James, just started reading it. I have just taken over some old hives that need repairing, no bees yet plan to get them next year. Thats were books like yours help introduce the new beekeeper, but also a great read for anyone.

Hey James, as a Bee Keeper my self I can certainly relate to nearly every thing you say. I have kept Bees on and off since I was a child for 30 years or there abouts. I keep and breed Bumble Bees and Honey Bees and one one of the very first people in the UK to successfully Breed White Tail and Red Tail Bumble Bees and as far as I know the only one that breeds Carder Bumble Bees. All that I learned was from studying the Bees them selves and Bee Keepers.


Brilliant!! I LOVE YOU

James Dearsley says:

Good luck Megahs2010….remember the golden rule of 3ft or 3 miles and you will be fine.

Thanks for the video – trying to move my beehives from my back garden to pasture land, not sure if it’s going to work!!??

James Dearsley says:

Great, I will look for that…….thanks for the feedback……love the fact that your first swarm collection was from a underground line

Stephen Stubbs says:

hi, have enjoyed your clips, althought I was going to take the beahaus route, I eventually went for home made top bar hives, more natural for the bee’s, but less honey, but like yourself, don’t want to gorge myself with honey anyway, also Im not a big drinker, but am giving mead making a go, my first attempt, if you click on my name, theres a short clip or two of me collecting my first ever swarm from the tracks of a london underground station…

James Dearsley says:

Thank you so much Linda……really appreciated….lets hope we can help these bees out……they certainly need it don’t they….

Linda Larson says:

I cannot wait to read this book, I don’t keep bees, but love all things to do with nature and I garden for the benefit of bees and butterflies – so I am sure this will be fascinating. Wish you loads of luck as you try to carry on with this valuable task – many don’t realise how valuable bees are to us and how in jeopardy they are. I can’t wait for the US release so have pre-ordered from the UK.
