Best runner bean

Posted: 26/05/2014 at 16:21

As a novice sowing and planting too early last year I have just bought tomatoe plants and runner bean plants to plant this weekend. I was shocked at the prices !!! What seeds can I sow at the moment to be more economical and still get some produce this year. I dont have a greenhouse and my garden is shaded a lot of the time by a mature Ash tree

Thanks  for all your help. The Hydrangea has now been pruned and replanted and thus far appears to be happy. Fingers crossed.

Please can someone advise me when to pick my courgettes. I am new to gardening and this is my first crop, they are growing so well I dont want to ruin them by letting them get to big. They are called Parador and are yellow if this helps. Thanks in advance.

I appreciate all of your help, Dove that was beautifully explained and Alan you did exactly what I was thinking of doing before all the advice. I think I am now well armed to go forward and garden with confidence. Happy gardening All

Thanks all for the advice. I will def. take some cuttings.I am still a little confused though as to cutting back if it promotes new growth from the base ? our plant is not only tall but wide as well. Sorry if I appear dense, still new to all this

Hi ,

We have moved to a new house and there is avery large and healthy Hydrangea bush very close to the back door. Can anyone advise how and when to prune it back to a more manageable size,also can I divide it to plant in other parts of the garden ? All suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.
