Lizyann, you will need to feed the ground well when they come out, leylandii do take all nutrition out of it, but if you look around now in garden centres you may get bogof or buy one get one half price  in chicken pellets, I have just got 2 really big tubs for 15.00

Thank you for your lovely comments on my long border, the hard work really paid off and I am thrilled with it now,

I would say for what you have there, Winnie yes it would be a good thing. I have seen ice on the inside in some winters.

Begonia tuber storage

No problem with that K, dont ever seal anything in plastic bags though.

I keep all the old compost from my summer tubs to store the dhalias in but this year I am leaving some in the ground and piling the compost on the top.

The ones I left in last 

year were fine even though we had all that rain.

runner beans

For me too, there is a lot of work that goes in to a good bean crop, I think new seed is worth it too.

I buy the one that doesnt need bees to polinate, is drought resistant so didnt water this year at all. Fantastic 100% germination and tons of beans

Unlike here in West Devon Verdun. Cant grow pelagoniums outside, much to damp and windy, all mine are in the conservatories.
