If they all open up like that, save the seed. Put me on the list.

I've done a bit of looking at the garden. Some very nice, new aquilegias. A lovely ruffled triple yellow. I found a bronze leafed cow parsley under the magnolia. I assume it is an offspring of ravenswing, but it's not as dark. If I remember i will collect seed. Then a bit of digging. Soaker hose laid around the sweet peas. We don't seem to have had any rain for ages, and its getting very dry. Then I planted some cornflowers in plug trays to drop in gaps later  on. Now soaking in the bath.

Have a good evening folks

Climbing "Yardlong" Beans (Fagioli Rampicanti)

I tried them outside. They didnt grow very well and there was no crop. I've gone back to climbing french beans. This year I'm growing cobra and s. Anna.

I like giving the garden a good looking at. Only problem is that  then I see a job to be done.

dilute some live yoghurt with rain water , and paint it all over the outside.

It should encourage moss and lichens to grow.

bean seed germinating

We had broad bean seeds at school, but we didnt use soil, just germinated them betwen a glass jar wall and rolled up blotting paper. Maybe the teacher took them all home to plant.
