Too early for beans?

Thank you all, I'll do those straight away as we are due some rain and it will water them in.

Too early for beans?

Is it too early to plant out the runners and French beans that are growing in pots? Here in Essex we don't tend to get late frosts. I've greenhouse grown them and hardened off in readiness, but they are growing tall so fast. Anyone else put theirs out yet?

perennial red salvia leaf

Bought red salvia last year and now that it's coming up this year the leaves are not looking well. The edges are yellowing almost like a variegated plant, but they were dark green last year. Is this lacking something, or does it not like where I've put it?

Aquilegia shapes

Yes Airwaves some of mine are really tall, well over 2ft. Not had that before. The wet winter we had must have affected them.

I'm delighted to see all these comments on this subject and I had found Touchwoods website was a delight to see. My daughter has some bi-coloured ones and I'd like to have a go at crossing some of mine.

Ear fungus

I discovered this growing on a large hebe bush where I'd cut off a branch last year. I've found out what it's called but wondered if it is likely to spread to other plants. I'm assuming it only grows on rotting wood but want to be on the safe side. Amazingly like an ear!

Can anyone tell me if the different shaped aquilegia flowers around my garden have different names? The shape of flowers is so diverse, and I wondered if one of them is the native wild variety.

thank you Fairygirl and Forester2 for the compliments. I always have my camera handy to catch a good shot if I can. Have a look at my magnolia flower by my name.

Fairygirl I'd have loved to be in Loch Etive to see that. I love that place. We used to go there every 2 years before my husband had a stroke. That ride down to the end of the road truly remarkable. Such a peaceful place.

is this clematis cirrhosa?

That's It!! Great ! Thank you both very much. I just knew someone on here would be able to identify it correctly. I'm delighted that it's now got a name.
