On the beans if they flower early that is a sign of stress- they want to set seed-they will probably grow as normal now Summer is here for 72 hours-enjoy

It is going to be an expensive month-hols and road tax to pay for

I appreciate you have dismissed  slugs or snails but they are usually the culprit and snails will climb up the sticks-go out after dark with a torch and I think you will find something munching.

When you say you have used slug pellets have you renewed them after rain -are they scattered about and not in piles?

Flower-it is good to hear from you only last week we wondered how you were getting on-so the job is going well then?-don't be a stranger now

It is only a 1600cc car-does that qualify as a guzzler?

I shall be camping it up at Wombledon

Red Onions - Buds Forming

Flower stem?-remove it you do not want it wasting energy by flowering and producing seed.

There have been a lot of reports about this- its due mostly to the topsy-turvy weather

Rose worry!

You are a worrier

There is no need to remove buds unless you are growing for showing-just let them develop and yes it has enough sun.

When the the flowers start to go over then remove them for a second flush of flowers

-relax and enjoy your rose
