runner beans

Michael, I think Tetley is absolutely,correct.  

As long as the runner bean trench is kept reasomably moist there is no benefit to spraying. a good dremching...a soaker hose is ideal......once a week or every 10 days or so is sufficient. been picking already but in earlier years I have been picking in June. 

Slugs/snails - the trade-off

Invicta I would not be without my lupins and delphiniums. recently all cut down but wonderfully majestic delphs are worth the effort. and what compares to lupins in the gap before mid summer perennials?

Wet soil

Posted: 14/07/2015 at 21:54

Wet ground in winter will not suit foxgloves in winter so no

ferns will love wet soil. as will astrantias,,astilbes and cimicifugas (acteas). my favourite grass ...hackonechloa...will thrive there as will many varieties of carex. hostas too.  Arum lilies will be good there as long as it doesnt get too cold. lobelia cardinallis too
