Everlasting sweet peas

Posted: 06/05/2017 at 11:51

Not a single sweet pea seed germinated this year (various packets and types) I think something must have eaten them.

I saw some perennial sweet pea plants the other day so I bought them to make up for the disappointment. They're in the poly tunnel with the door open until the warmer weather, I believe they don't smell which is a shame.

I will start my annual sweet peas off in October this year instead of sowing outdoors in the spring, maybe they'll have a better chance that way.

Runner beans and garlic

Posted: 06/05/2017 at 11:44

I was thinking that I might grow runner beans up a wigwam in a raised bed where I already have garlic growing planted in November.

The garlic is growing well but what I'm not sure about is  whether the runner beans will be too leafy and put the garlic in shade before they're harvested in July or if they wont be that bushy in July so will be fine to share the bed

Any ideas what this is?

The horse chestnut tree at the bottom of the garden isn't looking too clever. Any ideas as to what the problem could be?
