Where have all my beans gone!.

Posted: 28/10/2012 at 15:55

I bought a couple of dry pods in a few days ago -just had a look -5 usable beans and one titchy one

There are still a few on the plants but whether they will come to anything before the frosts gets them is in the lap of the gods

So Zoomer -I don't think you have done anything wrong-I am blaming the weather -but I blame that for everything

Some people swear by conkers as well for keeping spiders out of the house

Derris dust was withdrawn a few years back

Will try to explain Karen-I don't see any differences of opinion

If you gave cuttings- therefore green growth- they need light

Paul's reference was to a plant with no foliage -so it does not necessarily need light-until you kick it back into growth.

Now is as good a time as any-prepare the area first so they out of the ground for the minimum of time-if it is waterlogged or frozen -hold off for a while.

That is lily beetle

Vine weevil grubs-small creamy things with brown heads -often found in containers-they eat roots and have a tendency to burrow into begonia corms

An occasional inspection is always a good idea-can you still get mothballs?

Halloween name

I would just dry them off as you have been doing and store -dry peat -newspaper-as long as they don't get damp-cool,dry, and frost free

Watch out for the dreaded weevil grub
