With Rob and Rosaleen, Busby Road, Katikati – 1.00pm Sunday 14 April
Rob and Rosaleen have an elevated life style block up Busby Road. There they grow and pack passionfruit and last year planted a block of blood oranges.
Also there is a variety of other citrus and home orchard including some very productive plum trees.
Their bees are kept in a top bar hive and Rob is using an Italian, non insecticidal method of controlling varroa bee mite which should be interesting to hear about.
There should be enough parking at the house and down the right side of the drive.
