I read somewhere that hives should be south facing, is that true?
So long that they get good sun exposure, does it make any difference the direction they face?
My hives are exposed to winds all year long. I'm putting up a temporary windbreak while the hedge grows up, but there is still going to be wind blowing at the hives at times. But it's a wind from the south. If the hives faced north, that could help the winter, though summer air circulation may be effected.
Thanks for any tips.
