On a slight tangent, I don't know if I'm allowed to put links to Blogs on here, but I've been following the story of a completely amateur beekeeper in New York City via this blog and it gives lots of practical help/ tips for complete bee-keeping beginners and anyone interested in the process of setting up and creating a happy bee-hive: (it does veer off to gardening and other things too, but is quite an interesting read):

There are available books on bees written by experts with a lot of experience, I have a passing aquaintance with bee keeping having sometimes helped a very experienced friend when two pairs of hands were required, or when a swarm needed dealing with. Having seen the Martha Kearney programme on bee keeping I couldn't help but wonder why celebrity amateurs get such coverage uness it is to make us feel comfortable with our incompetence.
