Turned over a small area of land today where I had last years runner beans. Up came with a spade full of earth this:
I didn't know they had such large roots.
My question is, if I had left it in the soil would a new healthy crop yielding vine have emerged.
Or have I done the right thing in digging them up. As I was led to believe it's not good practice to grow the same crops in the same place year after year?
