I've decided that Blackpool FC will hitherto be known as the Blackpool Rockers.

When is your trip to the land of Captain Corelli?

Crikey, someone's a bit slow on the uptake  that was ages ago.

Although this wasn't taken by me, I thought I would post it anyway as it's a real 'chocolate box' shot.

It's a pub local to me, where I like to take sustenance from time to time.

 

Can I use Tomorite to feed my lawn?

You could use chicken pellets (at the recommend rate) until the autumn...then (in an ideal world  ) after scarifying & spiking, apply an autumn feed with  phosphates as the main ingredient. 

Oh, & tomorite....no, for as Dove says.

runner beans, healthy plants, few beans!

Sassi, I grow the white flowered variety 'White Lady' and have to say that after many years experience, is the best runner bean introduction ever.

This is the seed merchant description, which I can vouch for as being accurate:

" A premier variety in every way! Vigorous, high yielding plants produce the most tender, thick, succulent pods you have ever tasted. The delicious long, mid green beans of Runner Bean ‘White Lady’ are stringless with a wonderful smooth texture. These white flowered plants are less prone to bird attack than their red flowered cousins, and set well, even in high temperatures, guaranteeing a plentiful crop. Height: 3m (10’). Spread: 30cm (12”)."

Hi, Sassibird.....you're not on your with this problem, it's very common.

To save myself the chore of composing a reply, I add this RHS link that explains it very well: https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/Profile?pid=381

PS. As the nights are now getting cooler, things may improve over the next few weeks.
