Runner Beans AGAIN

Posted: 22/07/2014 at 19:25

My pennyworth: Flowers dropping during hot, dry weather is common...misting on hot days can be beneficial.

Runner beans reach their peak of production when the nights get cooler, usually in another month or so...which is why I sometimes wonder why people sow the seed so early in the year, when they run the risk of losing them to late frosts.

Birds do peck-off the flowers, but this seems to be more prevalent with red flowered varieties and I haven't known it to be a big problem.

I would definitely recommend growing the white flowered variety 'White Lady'. These are proven to set well in hot weather, are less attractive to birds and have a superb taste & are stringless.

I'm on commission. btw.

Not sure if Madge would be amused or not, Salino .....nice shots though.

I was at Sandringham last year during weather like we are having at the moment and really enjoyed the day.

Don't do patronising, Dove...but have to say, I love your diffusing skills. xxx

Personally I would like to see a gardener presenting GW, rather than an actor/performer.

Good luck with it, OL...you must remember to reset it to normal after use, as it doesn't default back after  being altered.

Maybe you'll be wondering in a week's time why all your pics are under or over exposed.
