one favourite of mine is alyssum - always have them in the window boxes etc - and every time you brush pass - mmm loverly ! have some in modules in the tunnel for country market and every time i water , a beautiful scent fills the tunnel . simple plant , but very effective 

Runner beans too many leaves?

Also , if you feel your toms are very leafy , you may simply need to feed - tomato feed contains potassium which the plants need to help produce fruit ( a high nitrogen feed / soil could make them over leafy ) Other than that plants in pic do honestly look nice and healthy


Lost and found in your garden

thats a relief - i thought i was clumsy , having "lost" so many hand tools ! oh and gloves - only last week one soggy one made a reappearance in the compost when i was mulching !

as for lost plants - rather a lot , but just hoping they re "mislaid" due to weather

maud - you have my sympathies - i was diagnosed with ibs 10 years ago and the list of things i can no longer eat grows constantly ! and christmas pud and christmas dinner were 2 o f my favourite yummies and now they re off limits ! on a more cheery note , there are still delicious things i can eat and tonights dinner was pheasant in red wine with lots of peppers from the tunnel , really tasty. and now i m having my friday glass (or two or three etc !) of white wine (It is friday is nt it ?) and thankfully my tummy has nt rejected vino yet ! theres always good sides

theres not much upsets me when i m trowel in hand in the garden , but creeping buttercups are on a par with slugs - and at least slugs are tasty nibbles for the hedgehogs

hi - might be that if you have a lot of crowns that theyre overcrowding each other. they need a bit of room. also rhubarb loves a good feed - horse manure or similar on the bed in winter and a good mulch too when they re re growing - you might get few more stalks then. good luck

veggiefingers - always grow my courgettes in tunnel now in beds rather than outside where i never had much luck. but they do like feeding (tomato feed ) and air circulation.
