Hi Reg

To upload a photo on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post.  If you get an error message ignore it and wait - it should be ok.

If it still doesn't upload you may need to reduce the size a bit.

Good luck

Climbing "Yardlong" Beans (Fagioli Rampicanti)

Posted: 28/05/2015 at 16:41

I imagine it's the low temperatures - from what I can find out their ideal growing temperature is between 25 - 35C

I've not grown them - it's tough enough growing runners and french beans in the UK and occasionally I grow Borlotti beans. 

I think Yardlong beans are a challenge too far for me

I wonder if they'd be happy in a polytunnel - has anyone tried?

What is this?

It's a Candelabra primula - gorgeous.  There's a large woodland garden full of them near me in Norfolk - an absolute picture

It's always as well to unplug them from time to time and let their batteries run down - it reminds them who's in charge

Don't think it's willowherb - wait a while until it flowers

Organic Lithovit NZ

Wellington is in New Zealand, which is where the poster is - not sure whether he/she's plugging a product for commercial gain, or just very enthusiastic about it.  Maybe I'm just getting cynical in my old age.

I've not seen the product about - googling seems to suggest that it's only available to organic farmers etc.  so presumably in large quantities.
