Hmmmmmm! Rain. Warm rain tho! It's such a nuisance cos I wanted to water the lawn
......oh, forecast is better. Just heard some sun is likely ....
Not the best runner beans I have grown. They are barely 50 cm tall whereas this time last year they were 6 or 6' high. Used to sow beans early and be picking loads in mid June. I would have a big foliage screen 20' by 7' by now. Whether its the variety......St George, for first time.....or the weather I don't know. Always grew white varieties with great success. Be interested to know how other folks' beans are this year.
Some Heucheras are HUGE this year but, again, the yellow varieties just don't do well for me. Don't think I can provide enough shade ...we have such bright light down here and this may be the reason. Shame...I love the yellow varieties. Now growing a couple in pots in shade by the house. I can grow them this way so will accept this situation now.
Hace nice bank holiday folks
