It will self seed if you leave some pods on.  You can take cuttings but seeding is probably the best.

Thanks for that tip. We don't eat pot noodles but will think about using yogurt pots as an alternative. 

See original post

 I don't eat pot noodles either but it's simple snack for the fisherman. (Cornish fisherman are very healthy despite their diet😀) I don't find yogurt pots any good, they are too floppy and soft and not long enough, unless you buy the big pots.

Tumbelina Petunias don't produce seed, you can only propagate by cuttings, try later in the year and keep them indoors in the warm over winter.

i wouldn't bother personally, you can buy little plugs in the Spring which aren't too expensive, pot up then pot on and keep inside until frosts are over,  then plant our in your baskets.

I cut up pot noodle pots, SIL is a sea fisherman and takes them with him for quick snacks.

I think slugs do fly, either that or they're very good at long jump, however do they get from the wall into the hanging baskets😀

I do bear you in mind Justin, but having got to several years past retirement age, I don't do so much work now, the last lot I sent you was from a Cornish churchyard, probably the best place I've seen, but haven't had a job there since. 

I will look for some when I'm next out.

Do runner beans need to be pollinated?

Same here Liz, my dad always used to pick of the first flowers anyway, he said it made for a stronger plant, I'm sure they will fruit soon,

I tried them once in the tomato greenhouse, as you said, a few hoverflies, couple of bees, not a white or green fly in sight, which was what it bought them for, so no, I wouldn't use them again,
