Beware - my mother gave me just 6 seeds. I started them off in coir pots, then planted them out with a wire fence to climb, they grew quickly, and have now spread, climbing over the beans, peas, melons, fennel and tomatos! They are trying to bridge the gap to my sweetcorn!
The melons seem to like it, but it was too much for the tomatoes which got totally swamped whilst I was away for a couple of weeks. I hope they are yummy, or I will be very sorry I planted them among other veg! Next year I may let them battle it out with the brambles, or iscolate them on the other side of the garden!
