Why May 12th David, come on we need more facts  I'm not doing runner beans though but have already sown my dwarf French beans 


Well, I didn't go into detail, OL, cos it's basically about GW.  But, (as you ask) runner beans are frost tender and sowing mid-May means they should emerge after the risk of frost and in temperatures suitable for them to thrive.

That's the trouble with gardening, there isn't a one size fits all.

I think the best piece of advice I could offer, is not to be too eager by sowing/planting stuff too early In the season and definitely avoid buying those frost tender plug-plants appearing in the GCs in March.

Btw, May 12th is the gardeners traditional day for sowing runner bean seed in the open ground.....they've been available as potted plants for weeks in the GCs.

Something that strikes me quite forcibly on this forum, is the thirst for knowledge of what & when peeps should be doing stuff in their garden.....and definitely Gardeners' World lets them down badly in this respect.

Given the vast amount of knowledge & experience of fellow members of this forum, I wonder if it would be feasible to start a thread designed to offer such help.....I do try to offer a step by step  guide re growing sweet peas.

They look seriously impressive, ImpHosta.....personally I've found them to be totally forgiving, except for total shade & cold biting winds.

Wow! 640 squids.....50 would be (given that I would want it in the first place) what I would be prepared to pay.

The script is all in the wrong order too. The first sentence should be the last one, with the photo just before it. Weird.


Lizzie, I know how annoying this can's just how it is.

Sometimes it takes me ages to insert a smiley at the end of a message because the cursor always defaults to the beginning....I reckon this is connected to the pics defaulting to the top.

Lovely colourful shots, thank you.
