Seems to me manuka is rather yesterday, but bush is the new thing.

Although manuka is still worth a lot more, IF you can sell it.

Was talking to a commercial beekeeper who had to sell hives to get enough money to put spring treatment in the remainder. He has 3 years of manuka honey in storage and has not sold any in 3 years.

Another I talked to last week. Had high losses due to putting treatments in later then he normally would because of not enough funds to pay for treatments.
