Good Evening FORKERS

Hi Verd, had short visit to Cornwall to see Cornwall play Dorset. First 2 days rained off, so visited Trebah (my favourite Cornish valley garden) Glendurgan which never fails to disappoint, and Heligan, which I saw last when it first opened , or is that reopened. Anyway cricket finally started on day3 and with my help Cornwall won against all the odds. I must be their lucky mascot. Stayed at Mannings in Truro... to be recommended. Used to stay at Budock Vean with my wife... great favourite.

If it's a small infestation regular picking/pulling will eventually weaken it and you will triumph.

Did the Olympics leave a legacy?

Yes it did, we got to watch fewer Gardeners' World programmes

Brief history of a garden... grass brown but recovering, roses slumbering after fantastic show, sweet peas banging on, runner beans enough to give away, huge sweet corn cobs, lots of lovely dahlias for my beloved. Ideas for projects... agapanthus bed.(inspired by trip to Cornwall to watch the cricket team beat Dorset, Verd!). will they ever look as good as they have this year? Lots of baby agapanthus seedlings to give away too. 

Looking forward to Malvern at end of Sept., saving pennies.

Typing this as monty starts, so don't expect replies for at least 30 mins.

Hi everyone, sorry to have been away so long but I don't have many excuses. Will definitely do better this time. Thanks Lucy.

Thank you Waterbutts... my philosophy to a "T"...

Verd., are you not fed up with those that pontificate without a shred of evidence to back up their claims. If they had to bet their pensions on the outcomes I think they might keep quiet. However they have to keep their names in lights lest we all cease to be in awe of them. Come back Titchmarsh.. all is forgiven.

Cut off foiliage ???

Runner beans

My beans in pots are prolific and earlier than those sown at same time in ground. The "secret" is watering with hose every day.  Fine spraying with hose under the flowers is supposed to help setting. Start now and plants will flower probably towards the top of plant.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
