Setting up a new colony

Up here in the Scottish borders it is in my view too late to be setting up a new colony especially if you are thinking of getting a queen started from scratch.
Hard as it may be it is now better to wait until spring and eight buy a nucleus colony that some one else has taken the over wintering risk for or do some Queen rearing and start some nucs up yourself.
