What to do about my shrivelled beans?

Container grown plants often need watering, even if it's been raining ... Leaves etc prevent most of the rain getting into the container.

No point in tomato seedlings at this time iof year unless you have a proper hothouse- type greenhouse.

No ... many roses produce good shoots from below ground ... not all roses are grafted.

Fairy, mealtimes when I was a child featured in depth discussion about animals' bodily functions, particularly the state of their bowels or oestrus, then total silence for the Weather Forecast.  No wonder OH used to find my table-talk a bit disconcerting when we were first together

That's a shame ... but you've made the move and they know that you're willing to be neighbourly should they eventually change their mind and decide that they need good neighbours ... some people have had difficult neighbours in the past so prefer to keep them at arms length ... or have had neighbours that try to take over.  That's why just being pleasant and polite but not living in each other's pockets is the best way forward in my experience.  But even if they're not friendly, I still don't understand why being able to be seen in your garden is a problem ...
