B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 18/04/2012 at 17:45

This has been very interesting-has anybody had any recent experience of the Homebase compost or even Asda etc-as Wickes and B&Q are out of the mix it seems-these were my first port of calls in recent years-I can forsee a slightly torn bag scenario before purchase

Talkback: How to plant out runner beans

Posted: 18/04/2012 at 17:26

It is too early to plant runnerbeans outside and too early to sow either-about the beginning of May to sow and around the end of May to plant out-depends on where your last frost date is.

I am on the south coast and start mine in pots in a couple of weeks or so-your location can make a difference of when to start of between 1-4 weeks.

1 plant to cane around 9/12 inches apart

Yes, the problem in non germination.  Tried one lot indoors and one lot in the greenhouse weeks ago and nothing at all!  Thinking now of buying some seedlings and growing on.

They take longer than tomato seeds to germinate sometimes2/3 weeks -give them a bit longer indoors

Well it has cheered up a bit here now-apparently they had to stay on site last night to make sure the fire was out-the local news were saying several days but the rain must have helped.

Saints one point way

Everybody nice to "see" you all
