nut, I got a seed packet recently; the pic looks just like normal f-g-m-n but they flower much later in the year.

Sunflowers + Forget me nots

I can't see why you couldn't mix them, though Chinese for-get-me-nots are a new thing for me; just sowed them for the first time a few weeks ago in pots as I hear they are invasive. They may flower later than Sunflowers though.

If you are officially entitled to use 'Royal' then I guess you have to use it. Are you legally/officially a 'society'? If you don't have to be so formal/old fashioned, I would just say 'Gardening for Everyone in Shropshire'

Ayidas; I'm trying to guess where you are from the architecture; initially I thought Mexico, but then I thought Abu Dhabi? Am I right?

Runner Beans

Steve, I was just about to ask that! I have pinched out the Morning Glory as they were starting to flail around and I don't see why one could not do that with Runners.

I would go for Mediteranean plants like Thyme, Lavender, a prostrate form of Rosemary, Sage etc. But still remember to water them as they may be protected from the rain by the building
