Hi Verdun and MMP - used JI as had already bought it, neighbour gave us some fertilizer and dug a trench and in went the prepared soil, which apparently the neighbour said he has no trouble growing his beans!!, and we planted runners and used canes and twine.  If i manage to get a couple that take i shall be chuffed for a first attempt. MMP I have ordered the book thanks.

Hi M M P - thanks so much for all those tips like the idea of the tea - our dog drinks our left over tea at the mo with a drop of milk !!!

We have actually bought J I multi purpose compost.. any good!!!  Will also check out Amazon.sounds as if its what i need as I love the idea of growing as much fresh fruit/veg as i can but obviously its not as straight forward as I thought!!

many thanks. see your point about the depth.  we have managed to find a fenced area so will put the 6 plants in there.  how far apart do they have to be and can i just put canes behind them and garden string for them to grow against? have also bought J I compost to dig in first as soul is heavy. does that sound about right? thanks.

HELP!!!! A very kind neighbour has delivered to my doorstep 6 'runner bean' plants. They are established but I have no idea how to grow them.  There is no room in my garden so am I able to put them into grow bags 2 to each bag? do they need a lot of tending?

Please any advice is welcomed.

Robbie.

Hi Dovefromabove - many thanks for your advice and I will now replace plant with confidence.  All new to me this growing fruit. I'm ok with tomatoes/potatoes.

 

Thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot.

Hi Bob- many thanks for your reply and I think that you may have answered my question. Think I repotted it and used John Innes compost!!! (probably not a good idea) and have been using tap water. The plant has now completely died.  So Bob if I buy another one from our local garden centre, shall I leave it in the original pot as they would have planted it in the correct soil as  you suggested? Hopefully I will have more luck.  I would also like to grow Raspberries do they need special soil also? Many thanks for your help. Rubina

Hi -  this is my 2nd year of trying to grow blueberries.  My plant has been in the same pot and it is yet to grow any fruit.  In fact now the leaves are beginning to go brown and doesn't look too good at all.  My daughter, who bought the plant for me, has also the same type of blueberry and it is amazing.  Can anyone please give me any hints as to what I may be doing or not dong wrong.....

Many thanks Rubina
