    Open pollination reliability when growing multiple varieties?

    When growing peppers in close proximity it is chancy when attempting to get uncrossed seed stock.

    misc Mead

    I have been wanting to do the same thing. Joined a few groups and the advice is to begin with 2 hives not 1. probably will cost you a good grand for start up if you don't do it on the cheap, which is frowned on.
