Have consulted OH who will be creating this space, and have been informed that "Of course we will be growing runner beans"- so thanks gardengirl and artjak for the info. Very useful. I have been informed that we will also be growing some tatties.
Dove- I've not heard of French beans before, they look do look nice and tasty.The plot is one of the sunniest places in the garden (if the sun shone).
Bjay(?)Tinkle- that's why I've been thinking about sugar snaps, I love them but there is no way I'm going to pay £1.50-£2 for just one fork full of them Square foot gardening is something I will be looking into.
artjak- I've never eaten a globe artichoke and would struggle probably to name one if I saw it but it's size as you describe it would rule it out,now if that was Cosmos Purity plant.......
unfortuneltly I do not like fresh tomatoes at all. There was a point in my life that I couldn't even bear them to be on my plate. Real shame as I think they are really easy to grow if there was some sun.
I've only had a garden for 2 years and have only grown flowers, feels like I'm embarking on a whole new world
