Kale & Beans

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 12:49

Bob, are you growing beans and sweetcorn together this year?  I'd love a photo of that - we're quite limited for space and we find that runner beans and sweetcorn both take up a lot of room, if we could amalgamate them successfully that would be great!

Gooseberry Pruning

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 09:51

This is the best video I've found on pruning gooseberries - I think he makes it pretty clear. 

Yes, cut the sideshoots back now to 5 leaves.  Do the main pruning in the winter.
