Lovely photos, Fidget, thank you. I've never been to Kew, don't know when I'll get the chance.


I've had a lovely scent in my kitchen terrace recently, wasn't the honeysuckle, jasmine or the Gertrude Jekyll rose. Mystery every year. You have just solved it! I have a lime tree!  A lot of old French houses have them.

Do runner beans need to be pollinated?

Morning all.


Still raining. My garden was looking battered yesterday. My Open Garden is on the 9th, hope it recovers in time.

Leclerc sells a sliced loaf called Toastiline 0% sugar which is better than most French sliced bread, which is American style and has too much sugar in it.

Do runner beans need to be pollinated?

Usually flying insects will do the job. There is a fairly new variety called Firestorm which is self pollinating. It did very well in my garden last year.

I have Gertrude Jekyll, lovely fragrance but very thorny. I think Mortimer Sackler would be better.

We have had a lot of heavy rain in the last few days. Also strong gusts of wind and some thunder. A lot cooler, was only 12° this morning. Garden is looking a bit battered.

Hello from daughter 2's. Just put my GD and GS, 7 and 5, to bed. Took longer than it should have done because we got carried away with bedtime stories. 9.30pm here. Daughter and SIL are out for a meal with friends. Tomorrow is GD's school play which I will be going to see.
