Well, it's not really the time to sow them yet - if you click on the appropriate button they'll send you an email when they're in stock - I've found this to be a very efficient service

White Lady is doing very well - I'm impressed - started cropping earlier than other varieties have in most previous years, and we've had absolutely no problems with them failing to set. 

So far a good heavy crop of well-flavoured runners.

Mine has a few leaves turn yellow and fall each year - I regard that as normal, but it reminds me to keep the watering up (although they like it free draining, they still like plenty of watering) and I also spray the leaves with dilute seaweed feed which always seems to perk it up.

Hello folks, I'm back from a visit to Snoodle and Littlest Snoodle   I had a lovely cuddle and got a smile from him   and a lovely walk around the garden looking at changes and talking about plans - when I think back to my garden when my two were at that age ...........

Just a bit p'd off tho 'cos on the way there a big tanker went past me as I pulled onto the dual carriageway and spun up a big stone that took a big chip out of my windscreen - I'm pretty sure it's too big to 'glue' - I've phoned Saga and their windscreen man will be with me on Monday morning providing he can get the right windscreen!

It is the new function of the tabloid press and Jeremy Vine - to spread alarm and anxiety about everyday things to stop us getting worked up about things that really matter, like working for world peace!

Oh dear KEF ((hugs))


Bit fed up but always a silver lining......

Sorry to hear you're fed up Verdun - it must be awful counting the days until the emmets leave and some proper people arrive in Cornwall for their holiday

Don't know whether I'll be watching Love your garden - may have to record it as I'll probably be watching the athletics recorded overnight.    I must admit, last week's LYG was head and shoulders above the earlier programmes
