Verdun, I moved my only Heuchera some weeks ago to a shadier spot and it has taken on a new life, so much so that am considering getting more.

Busy-L, you are so right, what with hail the size of large peas and coming back from seeing a friend with 'dead men's fingers'; having to quickly lay the fire and light it to avoid chattering teeth It IS nearly JUNE. This is not really what one expects! Have had to heat G/H tonight.

ellieD, I live in exposed site in the Fens and have never staked an allium; delphiniums get some support. I cannot find out which area you are in, so cannot advise further.

Contact Dulux and other paint companies, ask to speak to the tech guys, they love giving out info. Since it is a school, you might get a discount or free paint Work it!

Brill idea for runnerbeans

Posted: 23/05/2013 at 22:27

My clever neighbours came round today and told me they have built an archway OVER the main path through their veg bed to plant their runner beans. This will only steal about 20cm from the beds each side to grow a whole load of runners. Will try to get pics in next few days.
