BLT, what runner beans did you have?


I have had total failure of Runner Bean White Lady. I have resowed with moonlight. I have complained to the supplier.


French bean cobra and sweet corn swift came up in identical conditions and compost.

I got slugged

shutting the door doesn't keep them out. I use pellets on benches, they hide all over the place. Tonight the greenhouse is getting slug pubs.

Well I finished planting the sweet peas, tied to canes and watered in. I found a tray of clary salvia plugs has been decimated by wood pigeons, so I put them back in the polytunnel to bulk up again.


The alliums are starting to open so I cut a few for a vase along with some euphorbia and bluebells.

I dont have any.


Tesco think I have a dog because of the amount of food I buy for foxes and hedgehogs.


I also buy a lot of bird food including duck food.


Then of course there are the squirrels.


At least I don't have any vets bills.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

I have re sown all my runner beans with a different type. The first lot swelled up and then went mouldy instead of germinating. The sweet corn and climbing french beans sown at the same time are up.


I have emailed the supplier to complain.
