One of the best sources of Lottie Info is to listen to the oldest most miserable but most sucessful gardener you know

If their plot is full up most of the seasons and it taste good they probabley know what they are doing.................unfortunately the one I have is very technical

Hes/shes miserable because they are always getting asked for their "secrets" !!

I am keen to learn what combinations of veg are good for planting in succession.

I want to have most of the beds utilised over the year

I realise I can study charts or seed packets to see the life time of vegs...planting to pulling

? Any suggestions please friends

Thanks FB & Verdun

2015 will be the start of my 4th season from January next

I have made lots of mistakes and had successes and tried different processes depending who has given me advice !!

This season I have split my Plot into A B and C and will rotate from October 2015 but I felt that beans were the exception

I think I have learnt about "feeding " the soil and caring for the vegs

? Do beans do well in shaded areas ie next to a hedge with some bit being 6 to 8 foot tall

Can you or should you grow runner beans and other types of beans in the same place evry year

A friend says that "the old boys " on his site have been doing it for 15 years +

Does it differ depending on the variety

Any other experience would be appreciated
