It worked for me.

I've never had blight with Charlotte and I leave them in the ground for storage like Green Magpie.

I have grown butternut squash under sweetcorn twice, but I was disappointed with the squash each time. Perhaps the corn made too much shade, perhaps I planted the corn too close together. I don't think beans would be a good idea. Climbing ones would shade the corn and corn likes sun.

Half hardy annuals

Antirrhinums are the hardiest out of those. For the others I think the GH must be above freezing at night. Is there electricity in the GH? I had a paraffin heater, but now OH has arranged an electricity supply I have a little heater and a warm mat which I bought on the internet. It's great, there is a warming cable that runs through it and it sits on the GH shelf, with pots and trays on it.

Daffodils in June?

I've no idea, but I imagine it would be difficult. My daughter wanted pink and dark red tulips at her wedding in early May so I bought varieties that said they flowered in May on the labels, but we had an early heatwave and they were all over by then.

I think Verdun is jealous.

Well done OL.

I can't lend Chris Beardshaw, Matty, he's spoken for. I'm short and my OH is short too. The new Poldark rides a horse much better than the old one, who was useless. Must admit I like his eyes.

I thought 27 was over 60 - or is it (oops) a secret, or have I got it wrong?

Have been in veggie garden all afternoon. Planted and sowed broad beans, cleaned water butts, prepared ground for planting onion sets tomorrow - if there is time, we are going out to lunch with friends.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Have planted out 27 broad bean plants from earlier sowing and sown 2 more rows. Prepared the ground for planting onion sets if I get time tomorrow but we are going out to lunch. Have cleaned out the water bins in veggie garden and refilled them.

Think I prefer the new Poldark to GB. But give me Chris Beardshaw anyday!  At least I know we have something in common!

Morning all. Was sunny, but starting to cloud over.

For one who said he didn't care for roses, Verdun seems to be getting very excited about his new rose. I wonder if he'll think it looks lonely on it's own and will end up getting some more

So much to do in the garden, mustn't panic! Somehow, since I reached 27, it seems to take me longer.
