I'm growing the white flowered Emergo runner beans for the first time - recommended by Verdun - brilliant beans - setting and cropping really well - long straight string-free well flavoured beans. Very happy
I will be growing Geums and not marigolds.
I found even three courgette plants is a lot! and that trying to save space by using a climbing variety doesn't work. only scaffolding would have kept them upright!
not sure i'll try brassicas again next year. caterpillars have been the bane of my sprouts in particular...
was disappointed with autumn sowings of broad beans and peas. the former grew v well but seemed a small crop considering size / health of plants. the peas got done by snails i think.
on the tomato front, i tried lots of different varities this year - sweet aperitif, katiebell, lizziebell... but two varieties from last year (black cherry and sungold) def still the winners and will grow again next time.
i definitely won't be growing marigolds either! have taken over!
carrots and pumpkins beans and sweetcorn great this year won't bother with
main crop potatoes lot of slug damage you win some planning for next year
