Runner Beans

Posted: 25/05/2016 at 08:44

Runner beans don't need much feed. If you give them too much nitrogen, you will have lots of leaves and no flowers. Give them a mulch of compost mixed with as little granular fertiliser or blood, fish and bone. Make sure you water beans well. If they get dry, the flowers don't set well to form pods.

Another newbie plant ID please

I don't think it is a foxgloves, more like a willowherb.

I'm glad the weather was good for you, Punkdoc.

When the sun shines on the dandelions, they glitter and shimmer in a way that you can't get on the photo. Robin Wight is such a clever man.

We have more than one robin. There's the patio robin, the holly robin, the pergola robin and the veg patch robin. When they meet in the middle , they fight.

and then there's the ducks.

Not a good idea in a shop on late christmas eve after a bit of a fuddle.... Sausage roll and a glass of schloer has a lot to answer for.

Its not as bad as the factory my brother worked at. Him and the manager had to lock themselves in the office on Christmas eve. He complained of sexual harrassment. The personnel officer laughed all 6 ft 5 inch of him out of the office.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
