I didnt find the plant any good. I invested in a cat scarer. Approved by the R.S.P C A

cost about £11 pound two years ago. It did the trick.

Lots of beans this year which has come all at once. I have decided to freeze them

Any answers please to whether i should blanch them or not.

Lots of rain in north cornwall at the moment. Good it will fill the water butts up,so hard with watering cans from the outside tap.

I think i need to move the plant into a different border. To much sun

Many thanks to David K. with the advice about Wisteria. I am pleased to say it is in flower and looking good.

Any idea please. Has been in a rich soil,full sun for 3/4 years. Was in  flower when i planted,but has never flowered since.

Each spring the leaves turn yellow and die. The whole plant has died back by June.

Each year i have feed with different plant feeds,but this year it is still looking the same.

Thanks David K. Could be thrips.I Have already sprayed. Fingers crossed ,hopefully i might get some colour.

My 1 year old wisteria has 8 good size buds. I have sprayed for insects.Good leave.

The weather is so changeable.some days of sun with a cold night. Or a cold chilly wind during the day and night.

Today i have noticed that some of the buds are dropping almost crumbling.

As anyone any ideas please. Is it the cold.???????????????

Thanks everyone for the trips. I hope i will have a better crop this year. Previous years

haven't been very good due to a cold summer and alot of rain.Just to mention i have sown the seeds into the ground.Hopefully starting in the greenhouse will be better.
