2022 National Nuclei


National Nuclei: Our nucleus colonies consist of 5 frames of bees, stores, eggs and larva at all stages of development, headed by one our coveted Meridian Queens and supplied in a correx nucleus box ready for transfer into a full hive body.

Please do double check that the nucleus style is compatible with your own hive equipment.

Optional 50% deposit or payment in full

Should you wish to secure your booking by paying 50% of the purchase price now, with the remaining 50% payable on collection, you can do so. Simply enter the coupon code “DEPOSIT” in the ‘apply coupon code’ field at checkout.

Once your order is received, you may expect your nucleus to be ready in June or July (depending on the season). We will get in touch with you a few weeks prior to collection to arrange a suitable time and date for collection.

If you are unable to facilitate collection, then we are able to personally deliver and site your nucleus, within Cambridgeshire, for you – please do get in touch if this is the case.

If you are new to beekeeping and this is your first nucleus, then we recommend the Langstroth style hive: These are the hives that we use in our own apiaries.
