I collected a swarm this evening, nicely situated in a plum tree. I have put it into my empty Rose hive, which means I now have Dartington, Top Bar, Rose and Octagonal with bees in to see how they perform. The Dartington has already “vindicated” itself and I am hopeful that the others will be as successful.
