And The Winner Is….

Redcurrant Blosson - Incoming
Pretty In Pink On Bermondsey Street

Apis is one year old this week. And to celebrate that anniversary, I am delighted to announce the winner of our “Name The Mystery Seedling” competition.

Two entrants got the right answer : Basil. How they managed to look at a forest of green sprue and guess correctly, I cannot say. To decide the winner, I asked John Chapple, the high priest of London beekeeping, to toss a coin. He (rather swankily we all thought) pulled out a 1-pound coin from his pocket and covered it with the palm of his hand. Nikki Vane called “Heads”. It was revealed as “Tails”, and so the proud owner of a jar of 2013 Bermondsey Street Honey is “oval”.

Well done, oval. I hope that this victory was be seen as compensation for your honourable runner-up position in 2013’s bee-haiku competition !
