They're native to new zealand, but will happily grow in the UK or elsewhere.
But only honey from New Zealand can be sold as manuka honey

I'm confused. What is a Manuka bush in the U.K. I thought it was a species only living in New Zealand. How have I misunderstood this ?

It does make me laugh that I can buy honey locally where there are loads of manuka bushes but it can't be sold as manuka

I'm tempted to try the more expensive 'dense' honey he sells at certain times of the year

It has totally cleared up my hay fever to mate. I used to suffer quite badly. Not one attack, ever since I started using the Manuka.

The overall wellbeing it brings is incredible. Massively boosted energy levels. People around me, have noticed a big difference in me to.

It's amazing stuff.

Very interesting Mark, on the human health benefit side I've suffered badly with hay fever which was a Royal pain as I work in the countryside and found the pills upset my digestion and sprays had little effect. A teaspoon of manuka honey in my morning cuppa and again after dinner has helped massively.

Thank you.

Yes mate. Any type of boiled bait. It will not have the same reaction in a fishmeal, because of the salt content, which will inhibit that. But it has its own very soluble attraction properties, without any reaction anyway.

In a birdfood or nut type bait, it will react.

Earlier in this thread, I mentioned mixing a spoonful of Manuka, with warm water, and applying it to your freezer baits as a soak. To attract them into the general area. Iíve never publicised what Iím about to tell you. The fish below, are just three captures of mine, which involved free bait, soaked in a Manuka/water solution. Ive spoken loads on here before about filling free baits with water and other liquids. Not washing out, washing in. Just enough water to saturate them. Well Manuka is always added to that water.

The top one is from Englefield Lagoon. I caught it on my third ever trip to the lake, in very early spring. To put some context on that, I fished five short sessions that year because of work load. A very, very well respected angler, then full timed it, in the same swim for nearly a whole year, and caught nothing. I caught that fish on an S4 pop up, with five S2 bottom bait barrels in the general area. The barrels had been soaked in that Manuka solution. Iíve also done it with Geoffs chocolate orange to great effect too. It really works well. Try it. In cold water, itís absolutely deadly.

If you have it in tea like I do mate, put the milk in first. Putting manuka into standing boiling water is not the one. The milk cools it enough to stop the hot water damaging the active ingredients of the honey.

You will feel like a new man, seriously.

Equating humans with fish....

Yeah you're right. Some fish would be rightly offended by being compared to some of the humans I've encountered...



I've bought some manuka for myself. Sod the carp

Who said I was only looking to promote the growth of mould with Manuka honey? I'm not, I am mainly using it for its natural attraction properties. If I was using it for mould growth, clearly cheap sugar would do that. You will not find me piling expensive Manuka into particles to ferment them.

The Manuka I posted on here is £17. Posting a link to some of the raw stuff I've used previously, would make some of you pass out on that basis. I'm glad that I did not. I've been down that path before, and in tests, it made no difference to the effects using the raw stuff, or the supermarket version. That Sainsbury one is a very highly rated Manuka for the money.

Manuka honey is far more than something to promote the growth of mould. I've carried out personal tests and seen a VERY great health benefit from it myself, by replacing sugar in tea with Manuka. But equating humans and fish, upsets some people very badly.

I've posted on here before, every single creature on this planet, bar a few microscopic things in the ocean, have receptors for natural salts and sugars. They are the very bedrock of life on this planet itself. Manuka honey, is the best of the best when it comes to natural sugars.

Top greyhound trainers use Manuka honey on their racing dogs, for its wellbeing and boosted health elements. It's a legal way, of actually making a greyhound able to run faster I'm told on the sly. A natural performance enhancing drug as such. Manuka honey has by far, the very highest antibacterial properties of any honey in the world. It will cure kennel cough in dogs, in the same way it will heal upper respiratory infections in humans lungs. Normal honey cannot do these things. Do some research on its health benefits for a very wide range of animals.

If you want the raw unadulterated stuff that's not mega expensive, look here.
