Hi beeks,

I am planning to establish my very first Apiary at my summer house in south of Sweden. The thing is that my house is on the north side of a small hill. I did cut down all the shrubbery blocking the South East sun but the South, South-West is blocked by a forest and the East is blocked by the house. The North side is blocked by the garage and shed and a few Oak trees. So the Apiary is the middle of it all.

Is it enough to have the hives exposed to only the South-East sun? Do you see any issues with an Apiary being on the North side of a small hill?
