@Wintersong it looks like you are going to have a lot of fun planning your new border .

@Wintersong - Your garden looks lovely. That size bed to fill up should be fun Wish I had that much space - my ideas for planting always seem to outmatch the space to do it

Dry morning here, so I mananged to get the last of my veggie beds dug over. It was (again) very overgrown and very clay-ie so lots of compost and sand dug in. Courgettes will be going in there in a couple of weeks.

@Gardeningfantic - I'll send you a message with my address now. Thanks again

I hope you are safely on your way now Koala Girl. Enjoy your holiday.

Lovely day here in Cornwall. Best time of the year. Everything is so fresh and green.

I found 5 self sown seedlings of Clematis Montana in the gravel near the parent plant. I'm sure if I collected seed and tried to grow it I would have no success. I potted them up and they have put on about 4 inches in a week. They were under the pink one 'Elizabeth' but there is a white one near so it will be interesting to see what colour they are. Love plants for free.

Lovely garden Wintersong.

We are promised a dry warm day with some sunny bits-off to cut neighbours grass shortly.

kate1123

The weather forecast says dry but there is a big black cloud looming.

@pottiepam I am impressed I thought clematis from seed was very difficult.

I have cut the grass along with another job-got home, sowed lettuce, runner beans in pots, collected 20 snails and dumped them in the bin at the end of the road.

Happy days

Will plant out the rest of the dahlias this afternoon

Odd weather, black clouds but really warm. I have planted out 10 dahlias and potted on some more plants.

Good news I have found a Jacobs ladder in my garden, no where near the original, but I am not complaining.

Lashed back a huge stem of Mme Alfred Carriiere which blew down in the last lot of windy weather. Some buds opening, so I'll leave it to flower before performing more major surgery. Digging out trenches for runner and French climbing beans. Sunny today, but more Armageddon weather forecast for tomorrow, so I'll save the pricking out and potting on for then.

What is the difference between french beans and climbing beans???

sotongeoff

There are dwarf french beans,climbing fench beans,runner beans that climb but not dwarf runner beans.

kate1123

Mine just say climbing beans are they french?

sotongeoff

Je ne sais pas

What is the name of the variety-they are probably french -do they shrug shoulders, offer you a baguette?

kate1123

Fasold, does not sound very french Am I too late for runners?

figrat
Hestia is a dwarf runner bean. Seeds for French beans are smaller than runner bean seeds, I suppose about the size of a baked bean? - runner seeds more butter bean size. What colour are the seeds?
sotongeoff

Fasold is french-just looked it up.

You are not too late for runners-sowed mine in pots today-this is just about the right time

@figrat the seeds are a dark purple, the packet says purple flowers.

@Geoff   gracias.

sotongeoff

gracias-

what happens if you slip on the lawn.

figrat
Frenchies! I think I prefer them to runners, but grow both every year anyway.
kate1123

@Geoff  

@figrat I am still trying to find what is the most productive veg for me, if I am going to do this it will need to be worth the effort.

I do not have any runner seeds how did that happen?

sotongeoff

I have just taken some photos
