I want to keep bees, is it a summer thing or all year around

Hey all, I have been reading the comments and have noticed that many of you would like to keep bees but are scared to take the plunge yourself. Specifically for this need, I have developed a website which is completely free to use and connects beekeepers and gardeners so they can effectively share a hive. The website is called Host My Hive and has a live map, active communications and private chats, all for linking up gardeners who would like a beehive but are a little scared about bees, and beekeepers who just need the perfect location. Sign up for free and become a host for a hive! https://www.hostmyhive.co.uk

I live in the countryside and wanted to do my bit for the bees. The only problem im not fussed on bees, I don't kill them or anything but I couldn't touch them. Could I have a hive and just leave the bee's to it with no intervention

I’ve been thinking of keeping bees, I have no clue. I have a bee hive the bees have decided to have it in a bird nest. I’m letting them carry on, as it’s at the bottom of the garden , with a woodlands at the back of the garden. Obviously I’m not gonna touch them, but have planted bee friendly seeds . So if I bought a bee hive, would the natural bees inhabit this , and would that be ok ?

I'm a little scared to take the plunge just yet. I will go a visit a fellow allotment holder to see how he looks after his bees. My garden is north west facing, and the back of the garden is a resoviour. I'm a little worried as I have two small dogs and not sure if its ideal to have them around the bees. I've been keen to do this for a few years and have said every Spring this will be the year I make the big jump. FInger's crossed this will be a good year.

If only people were aware how easy it is to keep bees, you need a solid Bee Hive, bee safety equipment and suitable knowledge on beekeeping. Then you're good to go!

I would like to start bee keeping, and would like to know if the hive needs to point north south or east ,west. The wall that I would like to put the hive by is north facing and in the shade. My garden is large and open with a magnolia tree to large ponds

I would love to have bees in my South London garden. Not for the honey, but because I notice that I see less and less bees each year. Also for pollination of fruits, etc. Is this possible? I have poor mobility, but, as I said, I would just enjoy knowing I was doing something for the environment and for these wonderful animals.
