Is it safe to plant out runner beans started in the greenhouse?

Posted: 13/05/2017 at 09:27

Morning


my runner beans have had a growth spurt in their little pots in the greenhouse. Has anyone planted theirs out yet? Thinking of doing it today but not sure if I should wait a while. 


Also, same with bedding plants. Too early?


thanks!

Really sorry to hear the sad news about Michael. Thank you for letting us know Ellen.  I really enjoyed reading what Michael had been up to on his allotment. 

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Mine has arrived too! The packaging was great. Very sturdy. I do like the little booklet that comes with it too. Has lots of useful but simple info about lots of plants.


something flew out of the box when I opened it and one of the leaves has been munched; aside from that I'm happy with a very healthy looking plant. Was very dry though. It perked up after a nice water.


Think I will harden I think off in a cold frame for a couple of weeks. 


Exciting times!!

I have this rose around an arch. It was a tad limited on flowers in year one but has been brilliant ever since. Lovely scent. You do have to keep on top of the growth but I found it easy to train and well worth the effort. 


I feed mine and also apply a spray in early spring to limit black spot.


good choice I say. Here is mine for years one, two and three If you want an idea of growth rate.

Pottered in the greenhouse.


My courgette seedlings seem to have keeled over. The heat maybe?

Ahhhh, that's annoying. I've just gone to order and it appears that they don't add the delivery on right until the very end and it's a bit pricey. Comes in at £9.94 In total. Might have to have a rethink..... I'll see if I can find it elsewhere within budget.
