Runner Beans

I think the Dragons Tongue might be a Borlotti variety. Try googling that and see what you find.
I grew them a few years ago and used them as a green bin and also as dried beans and was pleased with them.

Love muscovies - used to have them when we had the small holding. The ducks are brilliant mothers and their offspring are very tasty

Woodlice in wooden garden statue

Posted: 25/04/2016 at 11:38
The woodlice won't be causing the rot, just taking advantage of the fact that it's happening. I would treat the wood with a wood hardening solution available from DIY places. That should stop the rot.

Hosta ask the farmers advice - men like being asked for advice I've found. They often rise to a challenge.
If you try to do it yourself I will be very cross indeed!

Plant ID - Rhubarb?

Posted: 24/04/2016 at 23:09
Not rhubarb definitely. Possibly a leaf beet or chard that is running to seed.
There is a variety of chard that is sometimes known as rhubarb chard because it can have red stems. This might have caused some confusion possibly?

Snowy mespilus

Amelanchier (aka Snowy mespilus) is a small multi-stemmed tree - I don't think it would look good cut back that hard.  Now that you've cut back the shrubs around it I think the Amelanchier may well develop more shoots and grow in a more balanced shape.
