Plants not thriving in new home

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 06:23

Looks as if they may have been visited by sawfly larvae 

They also need some decent pruning next Feb/March.  

Cats causing problems

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 06:12

I'm still grinning from the sight of our neighbours' cat slinking off with his tail between his legs after doing his usual leap over the hostas near the bird feeder, and discovering we'd just dug and filled a pond 

He's still very wary about coming into the garden now - he seems to think the pond is out to get him 

Good to see you Mummy Muddy Paws 

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all 

I told you I'd be up early .... I didn't mean this early   it's my body-clock again 

Lots of news last night - Bekkie - seems like you may be shopping for a ring!   I've got some good hats 

OL, looks like no one's going to give you gardening advice until we're sure your leg's better!

Being disabled does not mean incapable

I'm healthy and able bodied and I baulk at the thought of going to Chelsea or the Hampton Court Flower Show etc.

I love a day out looking at gardens , visiting galleries or just a day or two in London, but a day in the heat and crush of a summer flower show is not my idea of enjoyment 

Runner Beans AGAIN

Posted: 22/07/2014 at 19:34

I have grown white beans in the past but my usual favourites are a red flowered variety.

 However this year I had a  bad germination problem and ended up buying in some plants quite late in the day - Whiite Emergo - I know Verdun recommends them so I'm looking forward to seeing how they do. 

I agree with you David, about the rush to get them cropping - I think this is a relatively new phenomenon - I don't recall fellow allotmenteers back in the 70s expecting to pick runner beans in July. 

Bamboo

If you have too much bamboo and live within reach of East Sussex you might like to help out a new mum  http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/gallery_ipswich_bamboo_makes_a_tasty_treat_for_new_mum_mulan_the_red_panda_at_drusillas_park_1_3695480

OL 

Didn't get too warm here thanks to a breeze off the North Sea, nice and sunny and a comfortable 22.4C 

HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 22/07/2014 at 17:38

Just picked the first of my Buerre de Roquencourt beans - they could probably have stayed on the plant a bit longer and grown a bit more - but we're hungry
