Hi I'm new at beekeeping and this spring I would like to start three colonies. I have assembled 6 8 Frame deeps and 6 8 frame mediums. My plan is to put a package I got ordered into an 8 Frame deep then add another deep when needed and then with luck use 8 frame mediums for honey supers. I also was going to do the same thing with two nucs I've ordered. I started a bee school last saturday and my instructer said that it would be hard for 2 8 frame deeps to survive the winter. What do you think? I really hoped I could use 8 Frame deeps for my brood boxes. My Nucs are coming in Deeps.
