excellent news, Pentillie and for you too Busy-lizzie.
Potatoes, legumes, brassicas alway follow peas and beans, root crops, last.

Summer prune new growth in late August. That way it will make fruiting spurs.
I have hardly ever pruned my worcester tree, and it is laden every year.

Very quick. Aphids breed faster than rabbits.
Aphids (greenfly) often carry viruses which will weaken the plant. They suck the sap of the plant to live, and can produce live young asexually,(without a male) at a rate of knots.
A systemic insecticide such as Provado ultimate bug killer, will keep them off for about six weeks.
They are greenfly. Pinch them off between finger and thumb, or spray with an insecticide,
