You should not have let it go to 2 feet ot even eight inches

You need to cut it now but on the highest setting-not scalp it-but with a flymo that could be tricky-then gradually cut it shorter over the coming 2/3 weeks.

So not all in one go -but gradually.

Hot is not ideal growing conditions for runner beans-the flowers drop

Do not feed-not needed- and keep watering if dry.

Harvesting Seeds

Sorry to rain on your parade slightly-but to collect seeds you need to leave the flower or pod on the plant to mature of form a seed head

In most cases this is not the time-leave it a few weeks -more into the autumn

Then it is a seed bonanza

You will have very clean caterpillars-this works for aphids to a certain extent-not caterpillars at all

Buy a proper spray-look for eggs under the leaves or pick off the carterpillars.

But it might not be them at all

Too late for runner bean sowing -french mature a lot quicker and you can still sow now

Drought conditions

Not much now except carry on watering-you could have mulched the beds earlier in the year but even that would make little difference at the moment

Just something to live and cope with-you are watering at the right times-the only comfort is you are not alone

Pear or Apple?

Looks like apple to me-to be 100% sure cut one open-you will soon tell

Then back to the company
