I'm thinking of starting beekeeping.
Is it possible to do that in my garden?
My garden is 6 x 6,5 meters, full of vegetables, fruits and flowers.

I don't know anything of keeping bees. Is that easy?

Easy? NO as for your garden depends on your neighbours how its laid out and bee flight paths
I have a 150 ft garden and Im lucky that the people on both sides of me have let the gardens go to ruin and they are overgrown so my bees don't bother them
Best advice is to find a local beek and go and see and get some hands on and then take a starter course
Bee keeping doesn't take up much time apart from regular inspections I have no more than 3 hives and it takes no more than a couple of hours a week
