The beekeepers timetable

This is a really useful beekeeping chart, giving the weeks of the year across the top and bottom and an indication of the brood and adult bee population increasing then declining as the season progresses, the main forage plants (based on Devon, UK) and the jobs that the beekeeper should be carrying out at that particular time, including hive treatments.

I have seen this attempted in many beekeeping books but none seem to have captured it quite as well on a single sheet as G.R. Davies – so many thanks!

It is also available from the following link as a pdf file that can be saved or printed – have a look and let me know what you think.

    I think this is awesome – although I wish I could edit it for our region.


    • Hi Robert, glad you have enjoyed my blog, you can add regional comments here and I will publish them or set up a separate blog and link/reference to mine with your additions. Regards Daniel
